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."

—Leslie A. Suggs

Academic Internships

Across the campus students are enrolled in a variety of types of internships. Consult with your academic advisor regarding the types of internships related to your area of study. See the college/departmental internship contact information for faculty or staff responsible for internships in your area of interest.

If your department does not offer academic credit for an internship experience or if you have already maxed out your internship hours within your major, you may choose to enroll in UNIV 4000 Community Internship. To obtain the paperwork to register for UNIV 4000, click here. Email acadinterns@memphis.edu with any questions about UNIV 4000.

Some internships are available only to students who have successfully completed departmental prerequisites. Successful completion of approved internships is required for licensure or registration in disciplines such as teaching, nursing, child life specialists, dietetics, etc.
