Undergraduate students with a classification of Junior or Senior may earn up to three hours of academic credit through the Public Service Internship course. Interns placed with non-profit organizations, government agencies, or schools will enhance their educational experience and career options, and deepen their understanding of public and community service while making a meaningful impact in the community.
Standing internships are available each semester. Additionally, in coordination with the course instructor, new internship opportunities may be created in alignment with a student’s academic track and future goals.
