Do You Want to Earn Elective or GenEd Credit for Your Summer Internship?

BSOS internship courses are offered in the summer and are open to all majors. You may qualify if: 

  • You have completed at least 30 credits at the end of the semester
  • Your internship is onsite and not in a home office
  • You will be spending at least 45 hours at your internship
  • You will be conducting primarily para- or pre-professional work
  • You will be receiving regular and frequent supervision from an experienced professional 
Paid internships and internships in other states may qualify.

Tuition and fees apply for all summer courses, so this doesn't make sense for most students.  If you think it will work for you, review the schedule for summer tuition and fees.

Two courses, BSOS 288I (1-3 credits) and BSOS 386 (3-6 credits) offer elective credit.
BSOS 355 (3 credits only) fulls the GenEd Scholarship in Practice Outside Your Major requirement. (It is the most rigorous BSOS internship course and requires both that the internship be related to the behavioral and social sciences and that the internship host allow you to show some of your work.)
