An internship is a work experience offered by employers to potential employees to work for a limited time. Internships will vary in length but to earn credit we encourage they be at least 10 weeks long, providing direct contact with an internship coordinator or industry professional. Students can intern for any for-profit or non-profit firm to gain work experience. Students should pursue opportunities that promote Media & Information related tasks (Production, Film, Lighting, 2D or 3D design, game design, client side or server-side management, media research, etc.).
You must be one of the following majors in Media & Information:
• Media & Information BS or BA
• Media Arts and Technology (MAT)
• Media and Communication Technology (MCT)
You must have an overall GPA of at least 2.5.
You must be in good academic standing and cannot be on academic probation.
You must have achieved a junior level standing by the end of the semester preceding the internship (at least 56 credits).
You must have completed at least six MI credits.
The total number of MI 493 credits allowed during your degree program is 7. You may have no more than 12 credits from MI 493 (Internship credits) and MI 490 (Independent Study credits) combined.
NOTE: If you do not meet any of the requirements (above), you must also submit a well thought out waiver request and submit it with the application. Filling out a waiver request does not automatically mean the waiver will be granted.
This application is to apply for MI 493 credit ONLY!
