You may want to pursue an internship, either for credit or not for credit, during your time at Mason. You are eligible to hold an unpaid internship and earn Mason credit while working in that internship if you plan it and get permission for it to count toward your program of study. ENGH 504 is the course designation for internships taken for Mason credit.
