This supervised experience provides an arena for the practical integration of knowledge learned in the classroom with the opportunity to acquire experience and knowledge in real world situations. Students benefit both personally and professionally from the expanded perspectives provided by the professional supervisor and the guidance of the faculty supervisor in evaluating this learning experience. Internships are required for graduation.
