The Department of Human Development and Family Studies offers several internships that allow students to apply knowledge from their academic studies in a supervised environment, while gaining experience that is directly relevant to their career goals. Some specializations require an internship, while others offer an optional internship experience.
- Students in the Child Development concentration may apply for the department’s Pre-Kindergarten to 3rd Grade Early Childhood Education Teaching Certification Program, a highly-structured program with limited enrollment.
- Students in the Family Support or Lifespan Development concentrations may choose to complete the department’s Family Internship, which is a full-academic-year experience.
Students should apply during their junior year - for senior year internships. Applications for the Human Development and Family Studies internships are available on the undergraduate forms page. Assistance with internships is also available through the UNH Advising and Career Center.
