FUA offers different internship programs both for credit, and not for credit. Students can be assigned to external placements or Intern positions within FUA. Students interested in doing an internship should inform their GLS advisor whether they are interested for a for-credit or for a not for-credit internship. They should also submit to GLS their resume and a letter of intent describing what sort of internship they are interested for, and what will they gain from the experience. An interview will follow with the student, before the internship is offered.
