Below are some answers to questions to prepare you for your internship.

Who? All human services majors are required to complete a one-semester internship.

What? An opportunity for a practical learning experience in a human services organization combined with a concurrent weekly seminar and reading.


How? The human services internship coordinator works with students to identify high-quality internship placements that match students’ interests and career goals.

How is an internship different from co-op?

Internship Meetings

If you are interested in registering for HUSV 4994 for the upcoming  semester you are required to meet with the internship coordinator. During the meeting we will discuss the internship and seminar expectations and guidelines for identifying an internship. Please note: you must be a junior in your second semester or a senior to enroll in this course.

Students interested in the internship course will have to submit a personal information packet (including an updated resume and short-answer essays) and receive approval to enroll in the course because there is a limited number of seats. All students will be notified whether they have been approved for a slot within a few days of the application deadline.
