Internship

Summer Internship Credit

Jun 5, 2019
Current first-years, sophomores, juniors, and seniors graduating after summer 2019

Wellesley College offers co-curricular (non-academic) credit for internships and research opportunities that expand students’ learning beyond the classroom and contribute to students’ professional development. Initiated in 2016 as a joint effort between the Committee on Curriculum & Academic Policy (CCAP) and Wellesley Career Education, the Summer Internship Credit program was established to broaden our students’ eligibility for internships and other experiential learning. Knowing that many employers require academic credit for internships, we saw an opportunity to align workplace learning with the academic experience.

Assuming an experience meets the standards outlined by Wellesley Career Education, Wellesley College awards transcript credit for summer internships (May to August). Serving as a critical extension of our students’ education, such credit-worthy experiences provide a learning foundation for professional development as it directly relates to a Wellesley liberal arts degree.
