C440 & C441 – Internship I and II
3 credit hours each. Students spend 15 hours a week in a yearlong (nine-month) internship designed to meet their specific professional needs. Internships typically take place in a setting for children and families but may also include working with adults (e.g., college teaching or staff training) or special advocacy, research, or demonstration projects. The accompanying biweekly tutorial brings a student together with his or her faculty adviser to integrate theory and practice, acquire self knowledge, reflect on practice, develop appropriate approaches to working with or on behalf of children and families, and encourage professional development and identity.
