Hi there! You are not wrong that there can be a pretty specific list of things that recruiter look for in internship candidates. But what you might be missing on this one is that the degree is just one of the pieces of the puzzle.
Do you have leadership experience? Did you head up an organization at school that did something awesome that you can talk about to demonstrate your ability to build strategy, marketing, budgeting, partnership, team building etc. Sometimes if you are coming from a less traditionally business oriented field, you have to add a little more about your extra curricular activities, volunteer efforts, organizational involvement, even your hobbies can be relevant in certain circumstances.
Make sure you are using the language that makes you someone a recruiter can find. What are they asking for in the job description? Does that appear in your resume and online persona?
Best of luck!
