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.
