496 — Internship in Community Health Education

1–9 credit hours

The Community Health Education Internship is a concentrated pre–professional work experience for those students preparing for a career in Community Health Education. The collaborative partnership between sites and the University provides a culminating experience as the student transitions from the world of academics to the work world. The student will complete responsibilities and duties of a Community Health educator at the assigned site.

Students are to schedule a meeting with the Community Health Education Internship Director at least one complete semester in advance of the internship experience. All Community Health Education core courses are completed prior to enrolling for internship credits. Internship sites are selected by mutual agreement between the Student Intern and the Community Health Education Internship Director. Final selection is approved by the Community Health Education Internship Director.

The internship experience is a minimum of 450 clock hours, equivalent to full–time employment for the semester. Additional clock hours may be required when the Community Health Education Internship is combined with an internship from another major or minor or licensure program area.

The Guidelines for Completing the Community Health Education Internship have been developed to offer the Student Intern needed criteria, direction and suggestions for successfully completing the Internship Experience.
