Gain valuable experience outside the classroom

The Internship and Fieldwork Programs are designed to allow students to receive academic credit for work experience. This work may be done in any of a variety of agencies or organizations. The internship experience should serve as a transition between the world of the classroom and the world of work. The internship will give students an opportunity to relate their academic study to work situations and will provide more information on which to base a career choice.

Requirements to do an internship or field placement:

  • You must be a Junior or Senior for a CRJU or POLS or SOCI internship.
  • You must be a Senior Social Work Major for a SOWK field placement.
  • You must be in good academic standing.
  • You must receive the permission of the instructor before registering.

Additional Guidelines

  • In order to apply for any internships, you must contact the professor teaching the course for permission to add the course. They will grant permission if you fill out the correct paperwork, meet all qualifications, and you are able to find a suitable placement.
  • Please plan ahead. It is best to start working on determining a placement at least half of a semester before you wish to do the internship or placement.
