Steps to Gain Academic Credit

Academic Internships normally combine approximately 100 hours of work at the internship site with written analysis under the supervision of a faculty sponsor. It may be conducted at an international or domestic site during the academic semester, the summer, or while in conjunction with a study-abroad program. You may apply only one semester of CLAS 92a toward fulfilling the requirements of the CLAS major or minor.

Classical Studies

Although Classical Studies does not require an internship of its majors or minors, the department encourages internships for those who want an off-campus, hands-on experience working in an environment that enables students to connect their studies of Classical Studies with real-world experience. Students arrange their own internships.
