In this senior-level internship course, Deaf Studies majors will volunteer for a Deaf organization. Students can earn three or six credits depending on the hours worked at an internship site. Students will be supervised by a Field Supervisor at the organization and reviewed by a faculty member. The internship will serve as a field experience for students, allowing for the application of what has been learned in the academic setting. Students will develop skills working with individuals, groups, agencies, and communities. In addition, students must submit a journal logging their activities to the Internship coordinator. Internships can be either in the United States or abroad.
