Different students have different reasons. Maybe your are looking to have a unique experience, or want to build your resume or learn a new skill. It might be required in your major! Maybe you need more elective credit and want to explore a career opportunity. Perhaps you have a job that relates to your major, why not get credit for it?
Students have the option of pursuing academic credit for an internship. What is the difference between doing an internship and getting academic credit for an internship?
An internship experience can offer the benefit of career exploration and be an excellent resume builder, but it is important to remember that academic credit is awarded for both the work experience and meeting your learning objectives. The purpose of an academic internship is to better understand the theories, ideas, and practices of your discipline or major by actively engaging in a "hands-on", work-based, learning experience. Through an Internship Proposal you will define your job duties and develop measurable learning goals.
