Internships for Credit

The School of Business offers two courses for students to earn academic credit for an internship: BUS 300 (available to all business students), and ACCT 599/799 (for accounting majors and MAcc students completing an accounting-related internship). Internships are not a graduation requirement within the School of Business, so completing an internship for credit is not required. However, they can be a great option for students that need to earn credit for their internship experience.

Both BUS 300 and ACCT 599/799 are actual courses with assignments and a final letter grade, and tuition and fees are assessed. In addition, the classes do not have a rolling enrollment process. Application deadlines are firm, and due to the structure of course assignments, exceptions cannot be made.

For more information on the courses and to apply, please visit the links below.
