Internship Schedule

  • For second year students, the internship year officially begins September 6, 2022 through April 28, 2023.
  • All first year students are required to take a Internship Preparation Course on September 6 & 7th and will report to their agencies on September 8.
  • M.S.W. students are expected to be in the agency 30 hours a week, including breaks, across 4 weekdays. Specific schedules are determined by the clinical supervisor. Because so many students work part-time jobs in addition to their internships, we encourage agencies to consider 4-day internship schedules, if possible, to allow for students to work and/or complete other M.S.W. program requirements on their 5th day.
  • Students attend a required practicum learning seminar approximately one evening/month for 2 hours (10 sessions total). We ask that supervisors allow for this 2-hour monthly adjustment to their schedule if it happens to conflict with an evening that they are completing their internship hours.
  • Supervisors are asked to contact us to discuss any proposed changes to this schedule and to make sure that any calendar changes are discussed with your student(s) as soon as possible.
