Helen Hardin Honors Students
As academically talented students prepare to enter a highly competitive job market
or apply to prestigious graduate programs, they realize that a high grade point average
is not enough to guarantee a job after graduation or ensure admission to a graduate
program. That is why the Helen Hardin Honors Program places a high value on experiential
learning in the form of internships.
Having career-related work experiences can give honors students a competitive advantage
in the job market or enhance the quality of their graduate school candidacy. All
Hardin Honors Program students are strongly encouraged to pursue (paid or unpaid)
internships to fulfill the Honors Experience requirement in their junior and senior
Honors students who plan to use an internship to fulfill the Honors Experience requirement
must be enrolled in a credit-bearing internship course. Students should submit the
Honors Experience-Internship Option form to the Honors Office (105 Honors Hall) at
the start of the experience and no later than the start of the second week of classes
for the semester.
