Internship Courses

UT Internship Courses

UT offers hundreds of internship, field work, capstone and experiential courses that can be used to award credit to an internship experience. You should consult your academic advisor about internship courses and requirements specific to your major, minor or certificate.

If you want to earn credit but do not have a required internship course within your department, consider:

  • UEX Internship Courses
    These courses are designed for interns who do not need in-residence credit and do not want to pay the full cost for summer tuition.
  • TCE Internships & Career Experiences Course
    This internship course is free for all undergraduate and graduate students. Students do not earn credit, but this course will appear on your official UT transcript.
