*The approval in parenthesis is a secondary course approval. Students must submit a written request to International Programs for enrollment in the secondary course approval. Without a request, the primary approval is used.

 

If you are interested in using a USAC internship to satisfy an internship requirement within your major, you must meet with your academic advisor to obtain directions/guidance on what departmental requirements you must meet. Your final USAC internship approval and grade relies on approval from your academic department. Without your department’s approval, your internship credit may only satisfy elective requirements.

 

Note: Course approvals are accurate at time of publication and subject to change. Please contact the Office of International Programs to verify course availability.
