Available Internships

Working for Families

The focus here is that the work you do in your internship will not involve physically being with families, but instead take on a more indirect approach. Internships and careers that allow you to work for families can provide experiences where you are advocating, researching, or participating in identification work regarding issues related to family science and similar fields.

Working with Families

Internships that allow you to work with families give you more hands-on experience. Examples include working at orginizations that help families, clinics, and other family related services.Specific areas of working with families can include...

  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Families

*Working at a daycare or preschool facility is NOT an approvable internship for marriage and family studies students.
