Internship Success Stories

Leslie A. Suggs"During my internship at Tennessee Department of Children's Services, I felt like an educator, a leader, and a very special individual to be able to involve myself in such professional surroundings. I enjoyed the visits to schools, homes, and educational conferences. In my childcare center, I am now better prepared to make decisions and seek helpful resources for troubled children."

Helen Hardin Honors

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 years.

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.
