Internship Information & Guidelines

An important aspect of the program, not often found in master’s level studies, is the two-semester internship. The opportunity to intern at one of a variety of sites, for up to 36 hours per week during a 9-month period, provides the student with unusually thorough preparation for eventual employment.

Areas for internship are generally restricted to the Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia region, within commuting distance of Frostburg. Ongoing supervision is provided by an on-site supervisor. Some internship sites may require a criminal background check prior to approving students for the internship placement.
