CRD Internship Units
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.
