Undergraduate Internships


Undergraduates in Communicative Disorders are encouraged to pursue experiential opportunities prior to graduate study. Although direct clinical experience is not offered to students at the undergraduate level, students can become involved and gain exposure to clinical populations by participating in internships and volunteer activities. Students may participate in internships offered through the Office of Internships and Experiential Education during their junior and senior years. The Office of Internships and Experiential Education is located in Roosevelt Hall, first floor, and internships are available for students in any semester, fall, spring or summer. Students may also become involved in faculty sponsored internships, or participate in community based volunteer work. These activities help students to become professionals in the helping services.

N.B.: If an undergraduate student is interested in registering for an independent study to accompany an internship experience, he or she should first contact a departmental adviser or faculty person who teaches in the general area of the internship experience to request a CMD 492 registration. If accepted, this registration will involve some meetings with the faculty member during the semester to discuss the internship experience in light of the scope of practice of professional speech-language pathologists and/or audiologists.

Although this is not an exhaustive list of the possibilities for internship, students in Communicative Disorders have interned in the following outreach locations:
