Choosing the right internship course

Most students choose between Tippie’s 0 semester hour course (first column) or the Pomerantz Career Center’s 1-3 semester hour course (second column). Students who want to connect their internship to their academic discipline through additional research, can request to work one-on-one with a faculty member in the department of their major (third column). All of these three options will satisfy Tippie RISE.
