I NTERNSHIP Usually completed in the summer quarter Students will determine their own internship either internal or external to the University For international students, the internship will be considered degree required CPT. Part-time students may waive the internship requirement with work experience The practicum course may also count as internship credit.
P RACTICUM Allows students to work on projects with an advisor (U of C / ANL faculty and staff) and earn elective credit.
