Students completing an HDFS practicum or internship are responsible for investigating, selecting, and securing their own placement, similar to an actual job-search process. However, the HDFS Internship Coordinator’s Office provides several tools and resources to assist in this process including this extensive list of approved and recommended sites.
Approved HDFS 209 Practicum Site List (spreadsheet)
Approved HDFS 410 Internship Site List (spreadsheet)
The Internship Coordinator’s Office has gathered information from the local and regional sites on these lists, and spent years building relationships with their managers and staff in order to ensure compatibility with our learning objectives and program requirements. Students are strongly encouraged, though not required, to choose a field education site from this list.
