YSN CareerSOS: Can You Get College Credit for Each Internship You Do While In School?

life-preserverHi,

My name is Gregory and I am a print journalism major at Delaware State University. I am approaching my last semester in school and I have not had an internship. My school requires that you do one internship to earn 3 credits.  I have already registered to do the internship this coming fall semester. However, what I most likely have to do is get an internship at a newspaper that is near my school. Many of the editors at the newspaper are friends with the mass communications teachers .  Unfortunately, this is not exactly what I wanted to do. I would much rather have an internship at a magazine, particularly in New York. I have applied to many of them and I never got a response back. I realize that this is my last semester and I need to take any internship I can get so I can be done by the end of the semester. However, during the spring, I would like to try to intern somewhere else until I graduate in the spring. My problem is that most internships require that you receive a credit. If I already had an internship and received a credit, will they still let me intern if a college credit is mandatory? How can a person do multiple  internships if most places require you to receive a college credit?
