Total Credits16-18

Complete a variable credit civic engagement/internship project working collaboratively with one of the faculty in the student’s primary course interest. The number of credits will be determined by the student’s advisor based on the number of hours worked in the nature of the academic component of the internship or project.

Note: The program in global studies also strongly encourages students to study abroad for at least one semester, and to work toward fluency in a second language.

Because of the flexibility of the program and the internship requirement, it will be important for students to work closely with an advisor familiar with the program. Please contact the program coordinator with any questions you may have about the program.
