Academic Regulations & Procedures

Internships

Internship opportunities are appropriate for students who wish to explore further an academic area, gain work experience in a field of their choice, or explore a possible career.

Internships per se  do not carry academic credit.  Any credits that accrue from an internship arise from an independent study course associated with the internship and taken concurrently with or following the internship.  Such independent studies are supervised by a Carleton faculty member, carry appropriate academic/intellectual weight, must be substantially different from the internship, and include explicitly stated mechanisms for evaluation of work done in the course.

See also independent study, summer independent study and winter break credit.
