Economics majors have an opportunity via ECON386 to earn academic credit for internships or employment related to their field of study. This credit can be used for "supporting courses" towards the major requirements or as general electives towards the minimum 120 credits needed for completion of a degree. The maximum number of credits allowed in ECON386 is three.

More information along with an application is found here.

Students should utilize the resources of the University Career Center and its staff (www.careercenter.umd.edu) for exploring both internship and career opportunities. The Economics Department does not currently have resources available to help students find internships, however if an employer does share announcements with us they will be posted on the ECON Undergraduate Blog.

If you have any questions about your eligibility for earning academic credit via an internship, contact the Economics Department Advisors.
