Academics

Marist students, who are planning to apply for internships in the Spring 2021 semester, are encouraged to consider the types and requirements of internship situations which are most appropriate for them. Considering COVID-19 and these unprecedented circumstances, students may wish to consult with their families or physicians in making a decision about internships. Students are encouraged to discuss the internship opportunity details with the site supervisor and to then decide whether the internship requirements would be an appropriate experience for them.

This also applies to fieldwork and student teaching.

Students should discuss any concerns with their Marist Internship Faculty Coordinator.
