Sociology undergraduates can earn up to three academic credits by working at an internship. Students who participate in an internship program for credit must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher and have junior or senior class standing. All internships for academic credit must be approved by the department's undergraduate director. First- and second-year students who wish to participate in an internship for academic credit must seek special permission from the undergraduate director. Students can receive 1.5 or 3 credits. These credits would count as a 300-level elective for the major.
