Honors Internships and off-campus programs
An internship actively involves the student in an organization outside of an academic unit at the university. Most internships are pursued off-campus. Honors Internship at UAHUntsville is conducted as a credit-earning course. See the Honors Handbook for complete information. Internships are generally scheduled to match the academic calendar, mid-August to early December, January through early May and mid-May through mid-August.
Students who are interested in an Honors Internship should contact the Honors Office in advance of the semester you intend to do the internship. To get Honors credit for the internship, you register for HON 400. There are other opportunities for off-campus credit, some of which are listed below.
Sponsors. We welcome interested sponsors! If you are with an organization or agency that would like to sponsor an internship, feel free to contact the Honors Office for more information.
