Must I be a family and human development or sociology major to be an intern?
Preference is given to family and human development and sociology majors. However, if you are not a major, let's talk. You may have met our prerequisites through other coursework, and we'd be delighted to have you join the program.
How many credits is the internship course?
Students may enroll in 1-12 credits per semester, for a total of 12 across all semesters. Most students enroll in 3-4 credits per semester, but this depends on the needs of the student and of their placement site.
How much will I work during the semester?
Interns are expected to complete 45 hours of work at an internship site for each credit hour in which they are enrolled. For example, an intern enrolled in three credits would complete 135 hours over the course of the semester, or approximately 9 hours per week. (These hours fulfill a standard three credit course requirement.)
How do I become an intern?
You will need to complete an internship application online. If you have any questions about the online application, you can email Dr. Bryce (firstname.lastname@example.org). You will also need to attend a pre-internship orientation session and/or meet individually with the Internship Coordinator to discuss your internship goals and preferences. You can contact the Internship Coordinator, Dr. Crystal Bryce, at email@example.com.
What internship sites can I choose from?
There are over 100 local community partners on our internship site list. (You must be signed into this site with your ASUrite ID to view this file.)You may even enroll in more than one internship and work at more than one site. We will help you think about internship opportunities that will best suit your educational goals and needs.
Does this course count toward my degree program?
Yes. An FAS/SOC 484 Internship is a graded course that counts toward your credits for a family and human development or sociology degree.
