The Accounting Department offers an internship course that is open to a limited number of qualified upper-division students. An internship consists of supervised, on-site work at various participating local enterprises, culminating in a written report.
Minimum requirements are admission to a business major, junior standing, a 3.00 GPA or higher, and successful completion of at least nine credits of upper-level accounting courses. Students interested in participating in the internship program should contact the chair of the Department of Accounting and then apply for approval from the assistant dean for undergraduate programs.
Students taking an internship course are required to do so within their major field. Internship courses are offered on a satisfactory/fail grading basis only and are considered to be a major elective. A student may receive only three credit hours for an internship.
