Two full semesters of internships are required for students in the Community Mental Health and Social Gerontology concentrations. An internship is optional for students in the Early Childhood Studies concentration. Students in the Environmental Studies BA and BS degree programs are required to complete a one semester, 3 credit internship in Environmental Policy, Environmental Resources or Environmental Education.

Students in the Legal Studies, International Studies, or Urban and Public Policy concentrations may use SSC 496, “Community Internship” to fulfill one of their upper level course requirements.   The internship offers students the opportunity to work with a community, government, or private agency related to their major.  This internship is generally open to seniors in good academic standing.


Students need to complete at least 50% of the course work in the major to be eligible for an internship. The 50% of course work must include the prerequisite courses for the major (with a grade of C or better) and at least 2 upper level courses from the major.


Students in the Environmental Studies concentration must call 645-2245 x0 to schedule an appointment with Sandy Geffner.  Students in Health and Human Services, Legal Studies, International Studies or Urban and Public Policy, must call 645-2245 x0 to schedule an appointment with Roslyn Joy-Colón, Internship Coordinator. In this appointment guidelines for arranging an internship and possible internship sites will be discussed.  This appointment should be scheduled in the middle of the semester prior to the semester during which the student will be interning.
