The spring semester has begun and, along with it, internships for each of our senior Social Work students!
Each internship involves 500 hours in an area agency during which students put into practice the skills they have learned throughout their time at Ashland University while gaining valuable experiences to prepare them to go on to employment or graduate studies after graduation.
This year, 9 students will work in organizations across four counties to apply the skills they've learned in class, to gain new skills and experiences, and to serve various populations in Ashland, Richland, Huron and Wayne county communities.
Over the next 16 weeks, we'll highlight these students' experiences and accomplishments as they transition from students to young professionals in their internships.
