Internship Program


Students in the AREC major* and Global Poverty minor can obtain credit for completing an internship by enrolling in AREC386 (3 credits). AREC 386 requires 135 hours of work at an internship site.

Steps to completing AREC's internship program:

  1. You must secure a semester-long internship and submit the internship offer letter from your supervisor to the AREC Assistant Director.
  2. After the Assistant Director approves your internship, you will receive permission to register for AREC 386. You must complete the internship in the same semester you register for the course.  
  3. After you complete all the requirements of AREC386, you will receive three credits. In addition to working 135 hours at the internship site, you must also complete the academic components of AREC386. The grading method is pass/fail. 

*AREC386 does not count towards the seven required upper-level courses for the major. It counts as elective credit.
