We need to break up the one-semester internship into two semesters as an option for our students. The number of credits will be increased from 3 to 9 credits to 6-12 credits. 


Students may take it in one semester as 12 credits (600 hours experience) or two semesters:  6 credits for fall and 6 credits for spring (each for 300 hours experience).
