If you are working toward a human development degree or gerontology certificate, you are required to participate in a graded, supervised internship to gain experience in a professional setting.
We partner with many local organizations to offer a wide range of internship opportunities. You must initiate your own internship. A background check is required.
You must document 45 hours of internship activity to earn one credit. A minimum of three credits is required for the major. You may take additional internship credits, which will count toward satisfying the 120 semester hours required of all students for graduation.
