Interested in Earning Academic Credit for Your Summer Internship?

Every major in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences offers an internship course. Some offer more than one, and some minors offer an internship course as well. If you receive an offer of an internship that is not related to your major or minor, an internship may qualify for one of the three BSOS Internship courses offered by the college. These courses are offered for all majors during Fall Semester, Spring Semester, Summer I and Summer II. 

For more information see Internships for Credit | The Feller Center | The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences | University of Maryland (umd.edu). Note that students pay tuition and fees for an internship course, just as they would for any UMD course. 

You may qualify for one if: 

    You have completed at least 30 credits at the end of the semester 
    You have completed at least a semester at the University of Maryland 
    You have at least a 2.5 UMD GPA 
    You will be spending at least 45 hours at your internship 
    You will be primarily conducting para- or pre-professional work
    You will be receiving regular and frequent supervision from an experienced professional 

 Paid internships may qualify. 

Two courses, BSOS 288I (1-3 credits) and BSOS 386 (3-6 credits) offer elective credit. BSOS 355 (3 credits only) fulfils 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.) 

To learn more, email Kathryn Hopps at khopps@umd.edu.
