As a public health student, you have many opportunities to complete engaging internships. Gaining internship experience can help to reinforce and enhance your undergraduate studies, as well as cultivate valuable professional skills and areas of special interest within the field of public health and health sciences. Students complete internships at various public health organizations — including on campus, in their hometowns, throughout Massachusetts, and abroad.

Students may choose to complete public health internships for course credit. In order to receive public health course credits for an internship, students must observe the following requirements:

  • All internships must be approved by the Undergraduate Program Director, Dr. Gloria DiFulvio
  • Students must have previously completed a minimum of 45 credits
  • Students must currently hold a GPA of 2.5 or higher

If you do not wish to receive credits for your internship, you can explore and sign up for internships on your own. Even if you don’t receive credit, your experience will strengthen your resume and your understanding of the field.
