Human Development & Family Science majors are encouraged to complete a capstone professional development opportunity in the form of a full-time professional internship. The internship typically occurs during the semester following completion of all coursework. Students are jointly supervised by a faculty internship supervisor and an experienced on-site supervisor at the internship location.
