HSL Field Placement

Welcome to the Human Services Leadership Field Placement Office

Our goal is to support the preparation of human services leadership professionals by providing field experiences that promote personal and professional development. Placement agencies offer experiences that align with the program’s mission and philosophy, as well as with the Council for Human Services Education (CSHSE) standards.

Students complete two separate internships during the program following field exploration in their Introduction to Human Services course.

  • Internship (course HS 325) is a 120-hour experience ordinarily completed early in the program.
  • Advanced Internship (courses HS 420, 421 and 422) is a 280-hour culminating experience completed at the end of the program.

Formal application and eligibility are required for admission to internship and advanced internship. Each year the office processes more than 200 field placement applications and assigns students to their placement site. The office provides on-going support to students, agencies and instructors. As well, the field office works with the HSL Department to provide supervisory and evaluative processes and outcome data. The HSL Field Office collaborates to develop field placement options that align with and support student's professional development and meet the needs of community organizations.

We are committed to serving both human services leadership students as well as the community. If, at any time, the Office of Field Placement can assist you, please contact us.
