This course is the capstone and experiential component for the Child and Family Studies (CFS) major. Only declared CFS majors may sign up for this course. The course places CFS majors in the community, embedded in organizations that emphasize improving and enhancing the quality of life for families and children. Those who seek to work with families and children in the community need to be aware of national and state best practices in improving and enhancing the quality of life for families and children. Students will be embedded in an organization that seeks to improve the quality of life for families and children. This internship will be a minimum of 60 hours over the course of a semester (fall or spring). Students will be responsible for documenting and reporting on their experience in the final class and at the campus-wide Intern Expo. Content will vary dependent on organization with which student is placed.
Major credit. Capstone.
