We offer a variety of opportunities for students to practice in a professional setting the skills and knowledge they acquire in the classroom.
In some majors, applied experiences are central to the curriculum. This is the case for clinical assignments in social work and communication science disorders and for practice teaching in education. In other majors, such as art, business, communication studies, history, kinesiology, mass communications, political science, and theatre, students may enroll in an internship for elective credit. Interns may be placed at agencies in the local community or may engage in applied work outside the state through programs such as the Washington Center, a government internship in Washington, D. C.
