Earning Academic Credit

Whether you’re pursuing a degree in business, communications studies, political science, or another academic field, you may be eligible to earn academic credit for an internship. Some academic departments even encourage internships as part of their curriculum.

During the internship course, you’ll be asked to review reading assignments, journal about your experience, complete a comprehensive paper about your internship, and communicate with your faculty member. Every academic department has different guidelines for meeting course credit requirements, so be sure to review Furman’s course catalog before pursuing a for-credit internship.
