All Graduate Interns earn a Masters Degree in Counseling with a concentration in Student Development in Higher Education. A total of 42 credits are required to complete the major. The academic program provides graduate students with insight into the theories and models used by student affairs professionals on a daily basis. Students can then apply this knowledge in their own interactions through the 35 hour per week internship.

Second year interns are required to complete a Capstone project as part of the course program. This course is team taught by a senior University Administrator and a member of the Student Activities/Student Center faculty. All students must also pass a comprehensive examination in order to fulfill their degree requirements.

All internship applicants must follow the application process as outlined by the Graduate School for acceptance into the academic program.

The internship selection process is coordinated with the graduate school; therefore, we strongly recommend candidates submit the required graduate school application and counseling program application materials at least two weeks in advance of the internship application deadline of February 3, 2012.  Please review both the school of graduate studies and the graduate counseling program websites to confirm required materials needed for consideration.
