The Internship Process

  • You must complete an internship of (at least) 3 credits, which is equivalent to 90 hours of supervised work with the hosting organization.  Ideally, you will complete the internship after your sophomore year once you have chosen a specialization.
  • The internship is your opportunity to explore your interests and apply what you have learned in the classroom to a workplace setting.  
  • You should start your internship search several weeks ahead of the quarter in which you plan to begin the internship. The EVST Internship Coordinator (currently, Dr. Gordon Miller) can help you to develop an internship plan that meets your academic and career goals.
