FCS 4275 Internship

The FCS Internship is an individually-planned work experience in a business or agency appropriate to the chosen area of academic specialization. Information related to internships in the School of Family & Consumer Sciences can be found on this website. 

This pre-professional experience gives you the opportunity to put to practical use the knowledge and skills acquired as a student.  It is expected that you will gain an understanding of the philosophy, organization, and “inner workings” of your site and become familiar with the roles, responsibilities, and limitations of FCS professionals.

The objectives of the internship are to 1) simulate a job search as you identify and secure an internship site appropriate to your professional goals, 2) provide a relevant professional experience equivalent to an entry-level position, and 3) allow for professional self-reflection.

In order to apply for FCS 4275 Undergraduate Internship you must have:

  1. completed either FCS 3500 or FCS 4000 with a C or better,
  2. Internship Application submitted by the due date (see below), and
  3. approval from the Internship Coordinator, acting as a representative of the Chairperson of the School of Family & Consumer Sciences.

Dues dates for the internship application (all paperwork will be submitted online):

  • December 1st for Spring internships
  • May 1st for Summer internships
  • August 1st for Fall internships

Upon approval of the internship application, you will be administratively added to the correct section of FCS 4275 Internship in FCS. If you are not enrolled by the end of finals week contact Dr. Hugo.
