The advanced externship allows students to expand on a previous externship and to continue to develop both the necessary skills and substantive knowledge for professional success. Students will reflect on what they learned in their precious externship and outline, in consultation with the course instructor, semester goals for the advanced externship. Students are eligible for an advanced externship only if they have completed a previous externship semester. The advanced externship can be completed through either: (a) the same placement in the same externship program; or (b) a different placement in the same externship program. Externship students will be expected to track and complete 150 hours of work in this course, with at least 130 of those hours devoted to fieldwork, and students will participate in the classroom component as well. Enrollment in the externship is by application only. To be eligible for a credit-earning externship, a student must first complete a minimum of 28 credits of study. Externship students must be in good standing. Externship students may be subject to other prerequisites/policies as required by the placement.

Enrollment in the externship is by application only. To be eligible for a credit-earning externship, a student must first complete a minimum of 28 credits of study.
