Earning credit for internships and cooperative education.

Although an internship is not required for graduation (except for hospitality business majors), work experience in your chosen major field is strongly recommended.

Per Broad College policy, students are allowed a maximum of three credits of internship or other work experience to count toward the required elective credits for graduation. Internship credit cannot fulfill a Broad core or major field requirement.
