Question Title

* 21. (feel free to leave this question blank if you answered NO above).

If you responded YES above, would you prefer ENT credits, MAN credits, or credits within your major? Please explain.
And how many credits would you like (1-6)?

Typically 1 credit is a minimum of 45 hours (3 hours/week for 15 weeks), 2 credits is a minimum of 90 hours (6 hours/week for 15 weeks), etc.

Remember the hours worked are minimums, students are welcome to enroll for one credit and spend considerably more than 3 hours a week interning. Some students choose to enroll for just one credit, so the course appears on their transcript but they're not burdened with the higher tuition of more credits. 

Question Title

* 22. What is the minimum number of hours per week you're able to commit to your internship? 

Please try to be realistic with your estimated availability.
It's better to commit to less (and later offer more availability) than to over-commit and disappoint your supervisor when you're not able to work as expected.
