ABOUT EDC 364C: Fieldwork in Youth and Community Studies
EDC 364C: Fieldwork in Youth and Community Studies is devoted to providing students with opportunities to gain valuable, real-world experiences relevant to their Youth and Community Studies professional concentration (e.g., coaching, early childhood, special populations, teacher education, and youth and social services) and/or your Minor and Certificate Programs: https://catalog.utexas.edu/undergraduate/the-university/minor-and-certificate-programs/.
In this course, students complete 135-hour internship (10-15 hours per week) over the course of the semester with a minimum of 13 weeks at their site. Enrollment in this course means you have been approved to earn fieldwork credit by working at an agency considered off-campus. You must register for this class for a letter grade; pass/fail is not an option.
Your internship must address social justice as set forth by the College of Education: https://education.utexas.edu/about/diversity. Refer to the announcements tab for further clarification.
The class meets in person. You are required to attend weekly class sessions at UT. These are currently scheduled for Tuesdays, 4-7PM.
Your internship can entail some remote work. However, expect to complete most (80%) of your internship hours in person, at your off-campus site.
In order to register for EDC 364C, students must fulfill several administrative requirements during the semester BEFORE you plan to take the course and intern. This process should begin well before the advising and registration periods.
