Academic Credit for Internships

Did you know you can receive academic credit for your internship?

Center for Public Service

Students can earn course credit and fulfill their second-tier service-learning graduation requirement by participating in internships. Some departments offer academic credit alongside the 2nd tier public service requirement for completing a single internship. A list of participating departments and requirements can be found here. If your department is not listed, contact the Tulane Center for Public Service, and they may be able to help. Many departments offer independent study, capstone, and elective credit for internships. Consult your individual department for more information. Contact cpsinternships@tulane.edu for more information. 

Department Requirements

Individual departments will have specific policies and nuances in evaluating academic credit as it relates to internship opportunities. Students should plan to consult with their individual schools' for information on internships for academic credit within a major or degree program and for policies regarding limitations on internship credit.
