Externships are subject to certain restrictions:
For every externship, you must commit to work a certain number of hours and participate in the Externship Seminar.
Students must complete 50 hours of fieldwork for each academic credit. Each student should consult with the Externship Site to jointly determine how many hours of fieldwork will be available during a semester.
