Departmental Internship Requirements

Many majors require or encourage an internship as a part of their requirements. These internship course descriptions are taken from the 2009-2011 course catalog.  All internship courses listed in the college catalog must be registered for academic credit through the internship office.  

Students work with a Twin Cities community organization, agency or business, learning particular skills, factual knowledge about “real world” operations and interpersonal communications. Internships are individually designed around students’ interests, college studies and career goals. Advanced planning is required through the Internship Office. Not more than eight credits for internships may be included toward the major. An internship that clearly focuses on GIS may be applied to the GIS minor in geography. Only offered as a pass/fail (S, SD, N) option. Every semester. (1–4 credits)
