Business majors at A&M- Corpus Christi with a second semester junior standing or above and with a grade point average of 2.75 in their upper division work, 9 hours upper division work complete in major, and 12 hours of upper division general course work complete can apply to participate in an internship. Accounting majors will need to have 12 hours of upper division course work in accounting complete and an upper level GPA of 3.0 or higher to apply for an internship. Students receive three hours of credit for the experience (business elective) as well as a grade. The course grade will be given by the faculty sponsor who will consider the supervisor evaluation, the oral presentation, and the written report. There will be an end of semester evaluation by the supervisor. Accounting students will keep a diary comprising a chronological list of all work experience gained in the internship experience.
