Interships are a great opportunity for BDIC students to gain experience in their area of concentration while receiving credit towards degree requirements. A maximum of 6 internship credits (equivalent to 2 classes) can count towards your 12 class/36 credit BDIC concentration requirement.  You are always free to go beyond this (and many BDIC students do), but the additional credits won’t count towards the requirement.

Internships are managed by Career Services:
