Recognizing the value of the internship experience in undergraduate education, a number of academic programs and departments at Brandeis have developed courses that provide supplementary background, perspective and support to internships. In addition to increasing the depth and value of the student's experience, participation in one of the following courses will also yield academic credit. In some instances, internship agencies require that candidates be enrolled in a credit-bearing program. Students from other colleges and universities will want to check with their department chair or registrar to determine whether credit will be transferable.
One Credit Individual Internship Course
INT 92g - Summer Internship
Extended Summer Session: June 3 to August 9, 2013
Enrollment is limited. Credit or Non-Credit grading status only. This class is open to Brandeis Undergraduate and Visiting Undergraduate students who have attained a minimum of sophomore class standing and would like to earn one credit hour for their chosen summer internship.
INT 92g permits undergraduate students to complete a summer internship for one credit hour of elective academic credit. Students are required to work a minimum of 100 hours during 5 weeks at the internship site, provided they have obtained approval from the Haitt Career Center Internship Office. All applicants must submit a INT 92g Learning Agreement with the Haitt Career Center (email@example.com) before June 21, 2013 to receive approval to register for this course through the Summer School. Important information regarding INT 92g can be found at: http://www.brandeis.edu/hiatt/search/internship/int92g.html
Cost of course: $400 plus the one-time $50 Summer Registration Fee
Individual Departmental Internships
Some academic departments have created "92" level courses which are designated as internship courses.
The student is responsible for identifying a faculty member to supervise an internship. Each department handles placement differently so it is important to check with the department administration to determine how it is done in that department.
Because each Individual Departmental Internship is created specifically for each student, students should complete the Registrar's Internship Form (PDF) and submit it directly to:
