Internship and service learning placements, which are NOT guaranteed, are subject to availability—even in non-pandemic times.

Subsequently, students must send a current résumé in Spanish to potential providers and successfully complete an on-site interview. Students not accepted for placements will be required to enroll in traditional courses as listed above.
