Students receiving credit for the internship in Child Development and Family Living must complete 125 hours for 3 semester hours.

Students must earn a grade of A or B or the required internship must be repeated. Letter grades are assigned by the faculty supervisor. With faculty supervision, students make arrangements for appropriate internship placements while enrolled in the pre-internship course.

The final placement decision depends upon agreements between the student, faculty supervisor and an agency representative.

Internships are completed in the senior year, during the spring semester. Internship sites should be related to the student's career interests and objectives.

Child Development and Family Living students have had successful internship experiences at diverse sites in the local community as well as in the metropolitan areas of Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, Texas.
