The College of Arts & Science encourages all students to pursue internships and other forms of hands-on learning.  To accomplish this goal, students can:

  • Take INTDSC 2942 (1 credit) to develop skills to successfully apply for internships and employment, and to succeed in them.
  • Take INTDSC 4942 to earn course credit for an internship not sufficiently related to economics; if interested, apply here.
  • Take ECONOM 3940 or 4940 for internship credit in the field; if you believe your internship may qualify for this credit, please complete the Economics Internship Application.  If you have questions, you may direct them to your advisor. 

The College of Arts & Science holds a joint career and internship fair with the College of Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources each semester. In addition, all MU students can attend any of the campus career fairs regardless of the sponsoring college.
