Internship experience is beneficial to you as you determine the right career path and these experiences will give you the opportunity to gain new, marketable skills. That being said, it is not necessary for you to be registered for academic internship credit for every experience you have. The main thing is that you are gaining experience, and if you are involved in important volunteer or paid experiences each semester, the academic credit piece will happen at the right time for you.
If you are in an FHSS major other than Psychology, Sociology, and SFL, you should reach out to the Internship Coordinator in your specific major. If you would like to just explore some opportunities available to you in social services, community services, non-profits, criminal justice/law, education support, gerontology, developmental needs, business, etc. email the FHSS Internship Office (email@example.com) to schedule an appointment with Karen Christensen, Social Service & Community Internship Coordinator. Currently, Karen is working from home and taking phone or Zoom appointments.
