Internship for Credit

Career and Professional Development offers a one-credit course, CPD 451, for qualifying summer internships, approved toward the EXP coursework requirement. Internships are an opportunity to engage in professional development, further career exploration, and/or refine professional interests. Internships need not be paid to qualify. Students must work a minimum of 140 hours over no fewer than four weeks. Students who received credit in the past remain eligible to apply in future years.
