Students will have the opportunity to pursue internships in this program. These are valuable experiences that can gain you connections to working professionals and expose you to experienced people working in the field.  As part of the larger Master of Professional Science (MPS) program, all students are required to take an internship.  This lasts from 3 to 6 months in length.   Some are paid and some are not.  It is entirely dependent on the organization offering the internship.   We encourage students to pursue internships in their area of interest.  Some possible opportunities are:
