Internships for Academic Credit
Moody College of Communication Internship Courses for Undergraduate Credit

The courses are overseen by an instructor in the department who may require the student to attend class meetings, provide examples of completed work, keep an internship journal, etc. For information specific to your department, please follow the links below.
Advertising and Public Relations students should see the internship webpage for the Stan Richards School of Advertising and Public Relations for instructions and deadlines.

Questions about which internship course you should take, how it will count toward your degree, the process to earn academic credit, etc. should be directed to your academic advisor.
If you are wondering what kind of internship is appropriate for academic credit, how the course will be graded, course assignments, etc., please ask the course instructor.
