Internships for Credit

The value of an internship is immense, for both the organization and for the Saint Joseph’s University student who participates in the experiential education opportunity. While Saint Joseph’s University does not require internships for completion of a degree, many majors offer students the opportunity to further incorporate their career experience into their degree by earning academic credit.
While interviewing students for an internship opportunity, employers interested in supporting a student’s endeavor to seek credit are invited to ask about the student’s interest in such an arrangement; employers may also indicate a willingness to support a student’s pursuit of academic credit in the internship posting on SJUCareers. Please note that it is the responsibility of the student to follow all procedures and complete necessary paperwork, and register by the semester deadline required by his/her academic department. For assistance with questions about credit-bearing internships, employers are invited to contact the Career Development Center at 610.660.3100.
