Within the School of Health Studies, undergraduate internship experiences are required and designed as culminating experiences that provide extensive, as well as intensive, hands-on work experience opportunities. The intern, while still a student, is expected to assume a responsible and comprehensive role that is commensurate with that of a full-time professional. Interns, in collaboration with their supervisors, are expected to establish objectives to be achieved during the internship experience. Credit hours assigned to internships range from 3 to 12 hours, depending on the requirements of various concentrations in the school.

Students enrolling in internship programs must complete prerequisites and program requirements in placements arranged by Ms. Kathy Walker and Dr. Larry Weiss, with the exception of Dietetics students who should contact Mary Catherine Schallert.
