Internships

Introduction

A student may register for an internship through the Department of Computer Science (CS 1900) to satisfy the Computer Science Capstone requirement. The student must have a faculty sponsor from the Department of Computer Science. If you are not able to find a sponsor, speak to the director of undergraduate programs, 6141 Sennott Square, for assistance.

Important Notes

  • An internship may be from 1 to 6 credits. All internships for Capstone credit must be 3 credits.
  • Internship credit does not count toward the 37 CS major credits. It does count as ARTSC elective credit.

  • For capstone credit, attendance is required at the Capstone class.
  • Internship credit is billed at the same rate as other ARTSC courses.
  • All internship credits are taken with the S/N grade option.
