Internships for Credit

Note: This information does not apply to internships completed as part of a Bates course requirement nor will it allow you to receive credit toward a degree requirement. If you have questions about a specific course which requires completion of an internship, or questions about designing an independent study, please contact the academic department or the Registrar’s Office.

One credit is available for successful completion of up to two qualifying internships (total of two credits). Please be aware that internship credit will not count as one of the 34 credits required for graduation (32-semester credits plus 2 short term credits), nor will be included in a student’s GPA. For information and application procedures and forms, please contact the Center for Purposeful Work at

  • Fall 2017 internships –   October 13, 2017
  • Winter 2018 internships – February 16, 2018
  • Summer 2018 internships – July 6, 2018
