Prior to graduation, all TRSM majors are required to complete a 15-credit hour, full-time internship experience. This requirement is met during the semester of expected graduation. The Internship office in 330 FLG has information available on hundreds of approved and potential internship sites. These files are by no means representative of all possible internship sites, but they are a good starting point.
