Internships for Credit

    
  At BU's Metropolitan College, you'll work closely with the graduate student adviser throughout the internship search and negotiation process.

Master of City Planning (MCP) and Master of Urban Affairs (MUA) students are encouraged to obtain internships in the public policy and planning fields during their studies at Boston University. Students can work closely with the graduate student adviser throughout the internship search and negotiation process. Once an internship is secured, students can register for UA 801 Graduate Directed Study in Urban Affairs and Planning in order to receive 4 credits towards their degree. Only one set of credits can be awarded to a student, although this does not impede students from continuing with their internship beyond a single semester, or from
securing another internship. Internship For Credit Requirements
