Non-Course Honors Experiences

Internship Guidelines

An internship may count as an Honors Experience if it is:

  • Associated with an organization relevant to your academic or career interests and/or future career goals, with an opportunity to connect learning in the classroom to real-world projects; and
  • Comprised of clearly-defined, value-added projects benefiting the organization as well as your own growth and learning; and
  • At least one semester in duration (or equivalent), representing a minimum time commitment of 45 hours to one organization or business over the course of the semester; and
  • Paid, volunteer, or for credit*; and
  • Supervised by a mentor within the host organization; and
  • Designed to include a mid-point and end-of-term evaluation.

*Credit-bearing internships may count as non-course experiences, but may not count as honors courses.
