You may register for an internship once you have completed 18 credit hours in your master's program. The application should be filed by mid-semester of the semester prior to your internship in order to allow time for the placement to be arranged. Please make an appointment with the department chair to discuss your application. The chairperson's signature is required before the Office of Field Services will act on your application. It is important to note that you will have one semester from your starting date in which to complete your 50 clock hours. During that interval you will be observed at least two times by the university supervisor.
Please email Dr. René Hauser, program director, with any questions about Differentiated Instruction Internships.
