Field Experience or Internship

Departments offering programs leading to the specialist in education degree may approve, as an alternative to the 6-credit thesis requirement, a 6-credit supervised field experience or internship. This option is for students whose program purposes warrant such an alternative. A report written by the candidate and approved by the supervising professor must be filed in the academic unit offering the program. If the internship or field study option is selected, the student’s committee will determine that research competencies are demonstrated.
