Internships for Credit

Students in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences are strongly encouraged to pursue an internship.  Internships provide students with the opportunity to gain professional experience in their field of study, and may lead to an entry-level position with the business where the internship was performed after graduation.

Although students are not required to seek credit for an internship, many internship employers require that students be enrolled in an internship class.  Students may earn 1-3 hours of credit for an Internship.  Internships may be completed at any time during the academic year, and may be either paid or unpaid. 

Please note:  An internship through the School of Meteorology will not carry degree credit toward a BS in Meteorology unless the student obtains permission from the Director of the School of Meteorology for the internship to fulfill a specific degree requirement.
