• The College of Arts & Sciences does not award academic credit for internships, other than those offered in the context of Boston University Study Abroad programs.
  • However, students may use an internship as the starting point for a Directed Study proposal. To do this, an internship must be in a liberal arts field. Students must follow all the procedures listed for a Directed Study, and the Directed Study must contain a substantial academic component. The internship can provide students with valuable literature and field research upon which they may base the Directed Study.
  • If students are looking to participate in an internship that requires academic credit, and a directed study is not appropriate, CAS Academic Advising is happy to write a letter to the internship host explaining that we do not award academic credit, but do support a student’s participation.
