Internship & Study Abroad Programs

ECON 2481 – Internship Field Study

Economics internships are work/learning experiences that may be linked to the internship course (ECON 2481, Internship Field Study) for academic credit or done independently. Both alternatives provide a hands-on way for students to gain practical work experience. The internship is usually the length or equivalent of an academic term or summer, may be part-time or full-time, and paid or unpaid.

Internships are not required as a part of the Economics major and does not count towards the ECON major credits, but is a good supplemental option using elective credits.
