Internships are offered in some majors as an optional educational programs and others required and available to students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Internships integrate classroom study with supervised learning through productive work experiences. Employer partners work closely with The Career Center and the College of Arts and Science internship faculty advisers to provide students with supervised, “hands-on” working and learning experiences that have relevance to their academic major and career goals. All internship positions are carefully screened to insure that they provide a quality work and learning experience.

To be eligible, students must have completed 30 credits and maintain an overall GPA of 2.5. (Some academic departments may have additional requirements.) Transfer students need to complete at least one semester at Seton Hall to be eligible. Internships can be paid or non-paid and credit bearing or non- credit bearing.

All students interested in either a credit-bearing or non- credit internship experience should schedule an appointment with a career professional at The Career Center. Upon approval from an internship faculty adviser, internship credits will satisfy general elective requirements. At the discretion of the College and/or the academic department, internship credits may be used to fulfill major elective credits. Students are eligible to earn 3 credits per semester for an internship experience and a maximum of 9 credits. Students pursuing multiple semesters with the same employer must demonstrate increased level of responsibilities in their internship experience. Students who elect a non-credit internship experience are closely monitored by The Career Center. Courses in the Internship Program include:

  • Internship I - Pre-professional exploratory experience in a field. Assignments will be made in an entry-level position of employment. Taken only with the written permission of a co-op faculty adviser.
  • Internship II - Intermediate professional experience in a field. Taken only with the written permission of a co-op faculty adviser.
  • Internship III - Professional experience in the field specifically oriented to the academic major and career objectives. Taken only permission of a co-op faculty adviser.
