HDFS Pre-Professional Opportunities

Student preparing for internship

Welcome HDFS students! Here students can learn more about different opportunities that the HDFS program has to offer in applied experience settings as pre-professionals. These courses are in place to provide students with the opportunity to integrate classroom learning, theory, and course content into experiences outside of the classroom setting and to allow for exploration of a variety of career choices available to them after graduation. Successful students will articulate and demonstrate improvement in professional etiquette, competencies, and relationships as a result of engaging in these courses. 

The following pages provide access to more information about how to enroll in each course and the respective requirements. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the information provided, please feel free to contact the HDFS Advising and Internships Office by scheduling an advising appointment.
