CIS 2170 Computer Information Systems Internship

Students earn academic credit toward their graduation requirement by working in a professional information technology environment. Students must work at 5 - 10 hours per week per credit hour for one semester and be supervised/mentored by a professional in the field. The BPS internship coordinator can help guide students in their search, but students are ultimately responsible for obtaining a qualifying position. Students already working in the field may apply to use that experience to meet the internship requirement if they can prove that new learning will take place
