Internship Credit

IDH4940 Application 

"An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths." (NACE, 2011)

To receive credit, your internship experience must comply with this definition and have a deliberate learning agenda. In other words, you should have a firm grasp of what you specifically hope to learn and how it is applicable to your major or future goals. Your internship must be a supervised, hands-on experience that will help you meet specific career goals. Your primary responsibilities should not be clerical duties or observing someone else at work. 

If your experience matches this criteria, you may apply for internship credit through the Honors Program. Students from any department may submit an application for consideration. Students in the College of Journalism are required to present a letter from an academic advisor or department chair with their application. You need not be an honors student, but you must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 to be approved. 

Grading is S/U and based on the completion of two assignments and a letter of support from your supervisor. Assignments will be available to registered students through Canvas. A course taken for S/U does not normally apply to major requirements, but you may use these hours for elective credit. Your college may offer a similar internship program that can count for credit as well.The Honors Program offers credit for internships through IDH 4940.
