College Credit for Internships

Serious students have the opportunity to earn credit for an internship.*

Interns will be required to fulfill a variety of work-related  and academic assignments:

  • Interns will work 16 hours a week.
  • Students are required to complete 3 short papers and do an oral presentation.  The academic work will be graded by a faculty member on site. 
  • Upon completion of the internship, students must submit a 1-2 paragraph summary description of the internship (in English) for posting on our webpage.
  • Interns must also complete an evaluation form at the end of their internship.
  • Interns will earn credit equal to that of a regular course for the internship and take one less class that semester compared to the normal course load. Students may not take the normal full load of courses for their site AND also receive academic credit for their internship. Internships will receive a letter grade.
  • Interns are not allowed to receive any salary or other financial support from their internship hosts.
  • At the start of the internship, internship students, their internship supervisor and the internship coordinator will sign a form agreeing to the terms of the internship. At the end of the internship, the supervisor will submit an evaluation of the student's performance in the host organization. 

* Students from colleges and universities other than Middlebury will need pre-approval from their home insitution in order to receive credit for an internship.

Not-for Credit Internships

Students may chose to pursue an internship for the experience alone, and not for academic credit.

Such interns will still be required to fulfill a variety of assignments, minus the formal academic paper:

  • Students will work approximately 10 hours a week, depending on the requirements of the host organization.
  • Interns must submit a 1-2 paragraph summary description of the internship for posting on our webpage (in English).
  • Interns must also complete an evaluation form at the end of their internship.
