Internships enable students to work in a variety of off-campus settings. Students in arts and sciences, under the supervision of a faculty member, can receive credit for their work. Recent internship placements have included the Rochester District Attorney’s office, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, local television stations, environmental field work for the county, the Memorial Art Gallery, George Eastman House, and various financial and investment offices.
In social services internships, students have worked in various programs that help emotionally and physically abused children and the developmentally disabled. With special approval, students may engage in full-time internships away from the Rochester area; examples include research projects at the Federal Reserve and at Cohokia Mounds Historical Site.
