Health Promotion provides enriching internship & practicum opportunities to highly motivated, dependable students right here on campus! Students will work alongside Health Promotion Specialists to provide awareness and skill-building that encourages responsible, healthy decisions among college students; foster student engagement to achieve optimal health and academic achievement; and serve as a health and wellness resource for the Texas A&M University community. Internships and Practicums can consist of focusing on a specific project, or a more general learning experience.
Individuals interested in pursuing an internship or practicum experience with Health Promotion must be currently enrolled University students seeking credit hours for the internship/practicum. Students are expected to work with individuals coordinating their internship/practicum experience in the College from which they are seeking credit to ensure they can get credit for completing an internship with Health Promotion. If you are unsure of who your coordinator is, ask your academic advisor. Schedules and hours will vary based on the academic requirements being sought, and the project details. Most students work approximately 10-20 hours per week. All internships/practicums are unpaid. Internship/practicum spots are limited and based upon availability each semester.
Health Promotion typically has one to two internship spots available each semester. This availability is subject to change based on staffing, available projects, and office needs.
Ideal candidates for all internships will meet the following requirements:
- Currently enrolled as a Texas A&M University student
- Must be seeking academic credit for the internship/practicum
