BIS 484 provides the opportunity to earn elective credit anywhere from 1-9 hours depending on the number of hours spent at an approved internship site, and completing course assignments that include journal reflections that relate course work to your experience. This course is also available for both BIS majors and non-BIS majors who are unable to obtain internship credit from their respective degree programs.
Students are able to use almost any internship to qualify for BIS 484 credit. There is no specific list students must choose from to obtain credit. As long as this internship is a new experience that has begun recently and not something that you have been working on for years as part of a current job, then we are always open to discussing providing elective internship credit for students. Also, you may not have any relation to your site supervisor, the organization’s owner, or any other conflict of interest. In addition, it should relate to your degree in some meaningful way.
BIS 484 is offered in the fall A, fall B, fall C, spring A, spring B, spring C, summer C, and summer B sessions. All sections of BIS 484 are graded with a letter grade and do not have a pass/fail option.
