Internships and Special Study

Internships are an important part of the career development process, because they allow you to put a potential profession to the test.  An internship may confirm a career match and may even clarify specialization within a field.

Students can opt for an internship or research units depending on the nature of the work. Both internship and research units are variable and can only be taken pass/no pass. They are subject to the same Academic Senate Guidelines for awarding academic credit for internships. A brief description of both follows:

Internships

92/192: These internships provide the student an opportunity to enrich their academic preparation through experiential education. The internship will take place in a professional work setting and provide the student with work and experience. The academic value of the internship and the units awarded will be determined by the faculty sponsor upon completion of Form D788-1 (Request for Approval of Internship for Academic Credit), which can be obtained from the ETOX Advising Office (4111 Meyer Hall) or at the Internship and Career Center (second floor, South Hall). A CRN will be given to the student ONLY after the student and faculty sponsor have completed the form.

Special Study

99/199: Environmental Toxicology students interested in lab research should consult the “Faculty Fields of Interest” section on page 9 of this document to determine their area of interest and should contact the corresponding faculty person to determine if an internship is available. The academic value of the research and the units awarded will be determined by the faculty sponsor upon completion of Form D574-2 (Request to Teach an Undergraduate Variable-Unit Course), which can be obtained from the ETOX Advising

Office (4111 Meyer Hall) or at the Internship and Career Center (second floor, South Hall). A CRN will be given to the student ONLY after the student and faculty sponsor have completed the form.

Remember to follow the Internship and Career Center guidelines for transcript notation:
