DID YOU FIND AN INTERNSHIP?  GET CREDIT!

 

Completing an internship experience is a great opportunity to figure out your career goals and build skills for your resume.  If you're interested in gaining course credit for your internships, we offer an "Internships In The Sciences" class for both 1 and 3 credit.  This opportunity is available to all CNS students.

 

Deadline to apply for Fall 2019 is September 6th

 


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO GET STARTED?

 

Before getting enrolled into the "Internship In The Sciences" course, you must first have the following.

  • A secured internship (dates of internship must be concurrent with the semester in which you are enrolling for the course) 

    • An offer letter that includes:
      • Name & contact information of your internship supervisor
      • Specific beginning and end dates of the internship
      • Number of hours working per week (To enroll you must meet a total of 160 hours for summer/120 for Fall/Spring semester)
      • Pay rate (must identify if unpaid)
      • Description of what you will be doing during the internship

WHAT ARE MY INTERNSHIP DATES AS AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT?

 

Your internship must begin and end between the given semester's graduation date.  For example, in the summer you can begin your internship the day after the official spring graduation date and the internship must end by the summer graduation date.

Fall 2019 dates:  August 20th - December 21st.

 


Should I take the 1-credit or 3-credit course?

 

This is your decision based on your degree plan.  If you are not sure, it may be a good idea to visit with your academic advisor.  The 3-credit course has more assignments than the 1-credit course but it is up to you to decide what fits with your needs!
