Internships in the College of Arts and Sciences

Internships in the College of Arts and Sciences provide students opportunities to integrate disciplinary and/or interdisciplinary knowledge with experiences in various work settings. Through high quality, rigorous internships, students test and apply previously acquired knowledge, acquire new knowledge, and develop deeper understanding of disciplinary perspectives. Additionally, students gain valuable opportunities for career exploration and acquire greater insight into the value of a liberal arts education in the workplace. Through internships CAS students may also experience significant personal growth as they grapple with complex issues, encounter diverse populations, and meet both academic and workplace challenges.

Students must register their internship through EJN to earn academic credit.  Registration for Summer Session I runs April 8-May 24, 2024. Registration for Summer II runs from April 8-June 25, 2024. NOTE: Students must register an internship for credit at the same time they are actively working in the internship. No retroactive credit will be awarded. For more information about completing an internship for academic credit, contact CAS Director of Internships, Nancy Carpenter.
