In addition to the rigorous academic courses, the Internship portion of the Certificate of Advanced Study program is one of the most intensive in the state and nation. It requires a minimum of 710 hours of specific functions and responsibilities during which students work in six areas: administration and supervision, curriculum supervision, pupil personnel services, personnel, school community relations, and school business administration. Internships are conducted on-site at schools and districts.
Interns attend eight seminars on relevant topics during the course of their internship. Seminar dates/times/locations will be made available at the beginning of each semester. Candidates may go to any of the scheduled seminars.
At the beginning of each semester, an Internship Orientation is held by the Department. At that time, the candidate is provided with materials needed for the internship and will have an opportunity to meet with their Internship Advisor.
Candidates arrange for their own internship.
