Fieldwork and Internships
In several of the master’s programs, fieldwork — the integration of the theoretical with the practical — is a requirement for the degree, and students receive credit for their fieldwork. The sites for fieldwork are in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, and include hospitals, schools, and community agencies.
Many graduate students participate in internships throughout the New York City metropolitan area. The Office of Career Counseling provides information about existing internship programs, makes initial contacts for students who wish to create their own programs, and counsels students individually to help them determine internship possibilities. In certain cases, fieldwork credit may be given for internships.
