How to Gain Credit for an Experience
What is internship credit for?
The primary purpose of doing an internship is to better understand the theories, and practices of your discipline by actively engaging in a hands-on, work-based, learning experience. It is important to remember that academic credit is awarded for the learning achieved, not for the work experience alone.
What is EXP+?
Along with academic credit, you can fulfill part of the Stony Brook Curriculum (SBCs)through Experiential Learning (EXP+) which is a course or learning activity in which the student applies knowledge and skills in a real-world setting.
