Internships are experiences meant to enhance or complement the knowledge you have gained in a class or program of study. Internships typically last one semester and can be paid or unpaid. You will earn academic credit for an internship by enrolling into an internship course. The Freeman Center is here to help you find an internship and provide guidance for earning academic credit.
