Rutgers-New Brunswick Summer Session Registration for summer session 2024 is now open. There are several courses that you can take during summer session to satisfy Critical Intelligence Studies minor requirements.

If you need to complete the research or internship requirement (790:484 or 790:485) there are three options during summer 2023:

1. 01:790:484 is a guided independent study. Students write a 20–25-page research paper over the course of the semester; there are assignments every few weeks that will get you to that final goal.

  • This course is asynchronous remote, but the expectation is that you will meet with the instructor by phone to discuss your topic and receive feedback throughout the semester. These phone calls will be scheduled with the instructor for a mutually convenient time. Students should have completed 01:790:292 and 01:790:483 before registering for this course.

2. Students selected to serve on research project teams may also register for 01:790:484.

  • Applications for these research fellowships are open for the summer 2024 semester and students are accepted on a rolling basis. These are competitive positions and great resume builders. Applications are available at this HERE. Summer 2024 may seem far away, but these opportunities are limited to a select group of students, so please apply early.

3. 01:790:485 Internship in Critical Intelligence Studies: this course is asynchronous remote.

  • You must complete a minimum of 140 hours at your internship and complete a 6-page paper at the end of the semester. Explore internship opportunities HERE.
