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
- Mentor-supervised; and
- At least 45 hours of work; and
- Sanctioned by a faculty member (the default being your departmental Honors Faculty Representative) on the WorkflowGen proposal form for mentor-supervised independent activities; and
- Certified by the project supervisor (who may be the same faculty member).
*Credit-bearing internships may count as non-course experiences, but may not count as Honors courses.
