Overview of the Internship Program

An Indiana University Southeast Internship is an educational experience related to a student’s degree program and career plan which allows the student to apply what he/she has learned to real work situations. An Internship involves a student, an employer supervisor and a sponsor of the university.

An internship is a closely monitored work or service experience in which a student has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what she or he is learning throughout the experience. An internship:

  • Is a minimum of 14 weeks in length (the dates do not have to line up neatly with the semester dates)
  • May be part-time or full-time; paid or unpaid
  • Is a minimum of 8 hours per week and as many as 40 hours per week
  • Is not required for most majors. Students may choose to take an internship for credit or non-credit. A non-credit internship will appear on a student’s transcript and is monitored by the university.
  • Credit hours are determined by the number of hours a student works per week. See the chart below:
