Paid and Volunteer Internship Credit
Internships can be a powerful career development tool. By participating in an internship, students gain practical hands-on job experience, learn industry standards, and evaluate actual work environments.
- For paid internships, 1 unit = 75 hours, 2 units = 150 hours, 3 units = 225 hours
- For volunteer internships, 1 unit = 60 hours, 2 units = 120 hours, 3 units = 180
Students desiring to receive academic credit for internships should sign up for WEXP 290 — General Work Experience.
Department-based internship opportunities are also available. Students interested in an internship specific to a department should sign up for that 295 course in the specific department.
Virtual Internship Program (VIP)
Opportunities are available for global internships. International Students can sign up for a non-credit option and all other students should sign up for WEXP 290. For more information, click on the flier or go directly to the website.
