During their third year, students complete a nine to twelve-month clinical internship. The other courses during that year are either online or weekend intensives so that students only need to be on campus once a semester. This allows students to do internships anywhere around the country.
Internship sites include a wide range of opportunities: school settings or traditional clinical settings with opportunities to work with clients outside, equine-assisted programs, residential treatment programs and back-country–based programs. Clinical populations served during internships range from young children to adults.
