Undergraduate Internships

Bachelor of Science in Public Health (BSPH) students are required or have the option of completing an Internship (depending on concentration) in an approved setting to satisfy requirements of the BSPH program.  This experience provides students with an opportunity to apply public health concepts and skills in a practical setting under the guidance of a trained professional.  The supervised internship assists students in making the transition from the university setting to the applied work setting. Furthermore, the internship helps the students adapt more readily to the professional roles they are about to assume.
