Earning Academic Internship Credit

FCBE students have the opportunity to earn academic credit for internships that are related to their majors.  These internships are approved by departmental faculty and once approved, student interns work with a faculty internship advisor within their major for their internship coursework.  Internship courses are graded on a letter grade scale (A, B, C, D) and follow the same requirements as other academic courses for grading and drop deadlines.  Registration is by permit only.
