Academic internships are completed as part of a class, as a requirement in your major or program, or under the mentorship of a faculty member. Internship sites must be approved by the university in order for you to receive academic credit.

Consult your faculty mentor or the instructor of your internship class. You may want to visit CSUMB Placements, where you can view a list of approved internship sites.
