    Department Internship Contacts

    A note to students: Some majors require you to complete an internship.  Some employers will require you to earn credit while completing an internship with their organization.  Or you may want to have an internship course on your transcript. If any of this applies to you, consult the Department Internship Contact for your major/program. If you are completing an unpaid internship, you MUST be enrolled in an internship course (see the Internship Definition & Characteristic Matrix).

    Below is the contact information for each of the Department Internship Contact. To find a specific department, click on the letter corresponding to that department's name.  Click the major/program link to go to the department's website.
