Internships

An internship integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths - and they give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.

"I have truly loved my internship. It has exposed me to so much that there are not even words to express how much I have learned. I have not only learned about myself, but also what real world experience provides and means."

"I have gained experience working with kids and teens with developmental disabilities. I have increased my skill set and made a positive impact on others. It will be helpful to continue to work with people with disabilities to learn new skills, broaden my knowledge base, and learn new strategies to help clients."
