A few academic offerings are open to current Macalester students during the January break.

Independent Projects and Internships

You may register for an independent project or internship. To get started with an independent project, have a conversation with a faculty member you are interested in working with to see what might be possible. For an internship, contact the Internship Program to explore your options.

To register for a one or two credit independent project, you must complete a registration form and the collect signatures designated on the form. A waiver is required for independent projects outside of the Twin Cities. Registration/waiver forms for independent projects and internships are due to the Registrar’s Office no later than Wednesday, December 13, 2017. There will be no exceptions to this deadline. Registration may be canceled through Tuesday, January 2, 2018 if written notice is received in the Registrar’s Office by that date. Grading option must be declared on the form at the time of registration.

All work must be completed by January 17, 2018. It is not possible to take an “incomplete” for a January independent project or internship. Grades are due in the Registrar’s Office by January 26, 2018.
