Academic Internship Request Form

  • To earn academic credit for your internship, you must be working at the designated internship during the same academic term that you are enrolled in the 480 course. You must be working at least 15-20 hours/week during the fall and spring semesters and 15-20 hours/week during the 12 week summer course.
  • Three credits are earned for the course.
  • This must be a newly acquired position. Students cannot use their existing job as an internship for this course.

On occasion, your internship site may need to be contacted by the Office of Career Services if we have questions or need more information or clarification about your position prior to course enrollment.

The Internship course is open to College of Management students who meet the following academic pre-requisites:

  • Completion of 75 credit hours
  • Minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA at UMass Boston
  • Completion of one concentration or
  • Course Completion of 21 credits in your major core and/or foundation courses

Internship course registration aligns with your internship placement, not necessarily with your concentration or track.

For example, a marketing concentrator with an accounting internship would be registered for AF 480, not MKT 480, and the internship wouldn’t satisfy a concentration requirement in that case. For the great majority of students, their internship placement and concentration are in the same field, so this is not an issue.

Appropriate section registration is determined by a review of your position description by the Office of Career Services and Internships.
