Summer 2013 - Westmont's Internship Program
To earn academic credit for an internship, a student must enroll in a practicum or internship course. See information below.
Undergraduate years present an excellent opportunity to explore work options. By participating in an internship, a student may test classroom theories in a real work setting, assess personal strengths, hone personal skills, and begin a network of employer contacts. An additional benefit is that employers and graduate schools look for applicants with career-related work experiences.
Although many summer internships are not done for academic credit, the experience can be invaluable and will look great on a resume. Some employers require students to earn creditinstead of money for their time. In that case, a student must enroll in a Mayterm or summer course. The registration deadline for an approved Mayterm internship is May 10. The deadline for summer 2013 internship registration is June 7, 2013.

Earn elective academic credit for a fall 2013 internship by enrolling in APP-190 or APP-190SS for 2, 3, or 4 units. Or, enroll in a major practicum course for major credit. (Practicum courses have limited enrollment during the summer months.) Practicum courses have the -190 suffix, such as COM-190, BIO-190, SOC-190).
