Internship

If the thesis or research project option is not selected an internship or practicum experience must be selected by working closely with the HHPR graduate internship coordinator. MPH students must complete a practicum followed by an internship or thesis and should contact their academic advisor for more details. The primary purpose of the Internship/Practicum experience is to bridge the gap between the academic present and the professional future. The internship carries a maximum of six semester hours while the practicum carries a maximum of three semester hours. To enroll in this capstone experience, students must have maintained at least a “B” average, completed the HHPR core courses for all academic specializations (HP/PUBH 5379 or EDP 5335 and EDP 5334 or STA 5300) and completed at least 24 hours of graduate course work within the selected academic specialization.
