Internships can be a valuable supplement to academic coursework and an important tool in gaining real-world work experience.

Grading is S/U based on the completion of a paper at the end of the internship and a letter of support from your supervisor. A course taken for S/U does not normally apply to major requirements, but you may use these hours for elective credit.
