Am I eligible to enroll in an LA internship course?
The Liberal Arts internship courses are open to all College of Liberal Arts students, regardless of major, who meet the following requirements:
- You have a 2.25 or higher GPA
- You have at least 30+ credit hours by the start of the course
- You are registered with BTT Gateway
- You are in good academic standing at UT Austin
- If you have taken any of the LA internship courses in a previous semester, you earned a passing grade in each course (you have never failed an LA internship course)
What are my course options?
- LA 320, the three-credit upper-division course, is offered each fall and spring semester as well as each whole-summer session.
- LA 110wb, the one-credit lower-division course, is offered each fall and spring semester – students can only enroll in this course if the internship site requires credit.
- LA f110wb and LA s110wb, the abbreviated four- to five-week one-credit lower-division courses, are offered each first and second summer term.
- UEX LACI 101, the one-credit extension (UEX) course for interns who prefer not to pay the full summer tuition (particularly out-of-state or international tuition rates) and whose employers require credit to participate in the internship, though the student does not need credit for her degree plan. Course Fee: $300.
How many internship hours per week do the courses require?
- During the fall and spring semesters, LA 320wb and LA 110wb require 10 hours per week at your internship site for a minimum of 12 weeks between the first and last class days of the semester.
- During the summer, LA 320wb requires 14 hours per week at your internship site for a minimum of 9 weeks between the first and last class days of the whole-summer session. LA f110wb and s110wb require 12 hours per week at your internship site for a minimum of 4 weeks between the first and last class days of the term in which you are enrolled.
