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.

One of the most emphasized parts of our Honors College is that we are expected to think on our own, not just repeat information that has been given to us. Learning to think like this has certainly helped me with my job.
