Earning Credit for Internships
Do I need to be interning at the same time I am taking the internship class?
students MUST take the class (CMN 394 or CMN 395) the quarter they are
participating in the internship. Class assignments are designed to allow for
students to reflect on their experiences, think critically about the leadership
and organization of your internship firm, and develop skills while interning.
Can I use my job as my internship for credit?
It depends. Please email Graciela Kenig at firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following information. Name of the company and how long you have worked there; your position description; whether or not the work you do is related to your major; and whether or not your supervisor will agree to consider the quarter’s work as an internship
