Health Studies Internship

Participating in an internship is a great way to put classroom learning into practical experience. While engaged in the supportive environment of an internship you can test career goals, enhance professional skills, develop self-reliance, self-esteem, and responsibility. Furthermore, internships encourage networking with professionals and provide increased marketability for employment after graduation.

You must meet with your academic advisor before registering for internship credits.
