Independent Study and Internship Credits

If you plan to register for an Independent Study (JOUR 598) or Internship (JOUR 597) for next semester, you MUST have an approved Independent Study/Internship Contract on file prior to registering for the credit.

MMC students may take internships for credit, but the course will NOT count on your program of study as part of the required 36 hours of credit. Accreditation regulations will not allow us to give credit within the program for more than one working-type experience, and the practicum (JOUR 777) counts as that experience.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
