Depending on the type of internship, students who have completed 84 total UC Davis units may be eligible to receive academic credit.
An internship may qualify for academic credit if:
- Students are able to apply the concepts and methods of one or more academic disciplines to an appropriate work experience or field setting.
- Students are able to grow intellectually by extension of the general intellectual tools of one or more academic disciplines to the workplace; and
- Faculty sponsors are able to assess the quality of academic work that the student completes.
Clerical, routine maintenance or service work does not qualify for academic credit.
Generally, one unit of credit is earned for a commitment of three hours of internship service per week over a course of 10 weeks.
If you wish to serve an internship, consult the Undergraduate Advising Office (1282 SS&H). You must obtain the agreement of a faculty member who will sponsor your internship, and you must fill out an application.
