CRD Internships

CRD Internship Units 

Internship Courses

CRD majors are required to complete 4 units of CRD 192 internship before graduation.  To qualify for CRD 192, you must be in upper division standing, meaning you have completed a minimum of 90 college units.   Junior transfers may have over 90 college units, but it is not recommended you complete an internship prior to your 3rd quarter at UC Davis.

  • CRD 092:   Students in lower division standing, completed fewer than 90 college units, will only be applied towards overall 180 graduation units and not towards any major-related units.  P/NP grading only. 
  • CRD 192:  Students in upper division standing, completed 90 or more college units, will be applied towards overall 180 graduation units AND can be used towards major requirements ( 4.0 units satisfies internship requirement for CRD).  P/NP grading only.

Hours and Academic Requirements:    In addition to internship hours, reading and writing assignments will also be required at your faculty advisor’s discretion. 

Required Hours = Units
60 hours = 2.0 units
