There are two types of internships students can attain: internships for academic credit and non-credit internships. Internships for academic credit must be approved by faculty and are connected to an academic course. Some departments have lists of available for-credit internships and some may approve internships that you find on your own as well. NEW! Read about the City of Bridgeport Internship Program. Contact Dean Jim Simon for information on how to apply.
