Semester or Summer Part-Time Internship Option:

Part-Time Internships Offered as an Option on Your Education Abroad Program
Your education abroad program might offer an internship experience as one option to the list of course offerings available to you.  While you intern abroad, you are enrolled in an on-site program provider course that complements your internship. An academic department at CU Boulder must approve your internship in order for you to earn CU Boulder academic credit for this course (some students decide to complete the optional internship not-for-credit). You will need to complete the Internship Approval Form.  Arts & Sciences students who do not obtain departmental-specific approval may apply the credit hours to general/overall, non-A&S degree hours.  Find a program with an internship that fits you!
