Undergraduate Internships

 

Health Studies students must complete 8 credits of internship, except for students in the health science concentration who must only complete 4 credits. Each credit hour equals 30 hours of field work.

8 credits = 240 hours 4 credits = 120 hours

Students must get their internships approved prior to registering for the credits. You will need to get a stamped Add/Drop form from your advisor in order to register.

Internship Packet

The Internship Packet.pdf is required to register for the internship. In this packet you will find instructions and guidelines to help you through the internship process. It also includes all of the necessary paperwork you will need to fill out and turn in.

For a brief overview of the undergraduate internship please view the power-point orientation. This is NOT a complete guide to the internship. Students should thoroughly read through all of the internship packet above. This orientation will only give you a quick introduction to the internship process.

Take a look at the links below! They represent agencies and organizations at which students in the School of Community Health have completed internships. Of course this list is not exhaustive and students are encouraged to explore other opportunities that might be more relevant to their specific career goals.
