Undergraduate Internship Information

The Fall 2017 internship Deadline is June 30th, 2017 (modified from June 23rd)

Prior to graduation, all TRSM majors are required to complete a full-time internship.  The internship must consist of 40 hours per week for 13 weeks, totaling 520 hours and beginning the first day of the UF semester.  This requirement should be met during the semester of expected graduation.

The Internship office in 330 FLG has information available on hundreds of potential internship sites, but students are also encouraged to seek out additional sites that meet their career objectives.  The internship database linked below offers suggestions of organizations where past students have completed their internship.

If you have any questions about your internship site, semester or submission items, please email graduate assistant Emily Padgett at epadgett2010@ufl.edu.

Potential Internship Host Organizations:

If your organization is interested in hosting a UF intern or practicum student or sharing an internship posting with our department, please email Dr. Douglas DeMichele, the Internship Coordinator for the department, at demiche@hhp.ufl.edu. We encourage sites to share a position description, application information and/or link and contact person for us to share with our students.

TRSM internships may be paid or unpaid, but the student must work 40 hours per week for 13 weeks beginning the first day of the UF semester( UF Academic Calendar).  The internship is intended to immerse the UF student in the organization’s culture and expose the student to professional interactions common within the industry.  Students welcome the opportunity to shadow CEO’s and other leaders, take on specific projects, organize volunteers, work with social media, participate in campaigns, but most importantly to CONTRIBUTE to the agency.   We know that our student will receive a well-rounded experience but ask that all agency leaders prepare a 13-week plan specifying the anticipated interactions scheduled for our senior interns.  We welcome flexible plans but do ask that site supervisor specify each week of the internship.

As a prerequisite to the internship, students must work a minimum of 80 hours as a component of a pre-internship course at an approved agency within the industry. Additionally, practicum experiences (consisting of 48 hours per credit hour earned) allow the UF student to participate in supervised experiential learning opportunities. If you are interested in hosting a student completing the 80-hour experience or a part-time practicum experience, please reach out to Dr. DeMichele.
