Course Description

SOC-299, The Aging Studies Internship, allows students to apply concepts learned in the classroom to real life work environments. Internships are offered with area organizations that provide services for older adults. Examples include senior centers, continuing care retirement communities and adult day programs. In addition, students are able to explore diverse career paths, expand their skills and knowledge base, and develop greater interpersonal skills. Academic internships are awarded one credit per every forty-five hours of internship work. To qualify for an academic internship, students must have a grade point average of 2.0 or better. Aging Studies internships require coordination with the Aging Studies Faculty Advisor and the Coordinator of Service-Learning and Internships.
