HMSV 4890 - Internship in Human Services

12 cr. 30 hr. Day course offered every Semester.

This option is a block placement of 30 hours per week for one semester, either Fall or Spring (12 credits, one semester). Internship is the structured experience that allows senior Human Services majors to integrate and apply skills and theory in a field-based setting under the supervision of a qualified professional. Placements may be direct service or administrative. Examples of the wide variety of settings include mental health agencies, social services, hospitals, prisons, family service agencies, probation departments, residential programs, nursing homes, community advocacy organizations, crisis centers, and human resource departments in businesses and other organizations. While in placement, students participate in a weekly seminar on campus, in which they share their experiences and develop a heightened awareness of their placement site and the larger system of human services.

Prerequisite(s): Completion of all core courses in Human Services and successful completion of the Internship eligibility requirements. Students must have completed their prerequisites at least one semester before taking Internship and must pre-register with the Field Placement Office at the beginning of the semester before they plan to start placement.
