This course satisfies the Experiential Education requirement of the College of Arts and Sciences. The syllabus gives the detailed description of the course. The evaluation form has to be submitted after you complete the internship. (ECON 293 was previously numbered ECON 397. The change in numbers has no effect.)
The Internship Coordinator (on the right) normally supervises all internships, but you can work with another faculty member.
You have to approved by the Economics Department for ECON 293 credit before the internship starts. Students with summer internships can register for Fall credit, but applications for Fall credit have to be approved before the internship starts.
There is no class meeting so there is no enrollment limit on this class.
University Career Services offers another option. It is also possible (but not easy) to arrange an independent studies project with a relevant faculty member. These alternatives do not carry Experiential Education credit.
