Locating Internship Sites

INST majors who are interested in an internship for Frostburg credit should see the Sally A. Boniece, Coordinator of International Studies. There are several benefits in taking an internship for academic credit which include the following:

  • The option of either 9 or 15 credits for the internship.
  • Three elective credits of INST 492 Internship Seminar for the major "without specialized concentration" and up to 6 elective credits in the major's four concentrations.
  • Up to 15 credit hours counted toward the 120 hours needed for graduation.
  • A great line on your resume showing that you worked and went to school at the same time.

If you are interested in experiencing a challenging and rewarding summer exploring career options, see Dr. Boniece as soon as possible. The best internship sites are claimed early!
