Internships greatly enhance a student’s learning experience, giving them an opportunity to explore first hand the opportunities and challenges of their intended careers while gaining valuable real world skills. In order to support students who engage in these unique opportunities the Honors College provides credit for academically strong internship programs.
Students can earn one Honors elective (3 credit hours) toward their Honors degree by completing an HON version of a Hinckley Institute Internship. Students are welcome to take multiple internships through Hinckley, however Honors will only award credit for one internship per regional level (i.e. local, national, and global). Students seeking Honors credit are expected to complete additional assignments within the context of their internship. For more details contact your Honors Academic Advisor.
Students can also gain elective credit through local and personalized internships that have received prior-approval. Students must propose and design their own internship. Upon receiving approval students will gain access to and a permission code for HON 3500: Honors Internship. For inquiries into this process please contact Assistant Dean Patricia Rohrer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
