Internships

Listed below are several organizations at which RFMS students may complete their practicums. Some of these internships are organized through partnerships that DePaul has cultivated with an organization while others are publicly listed internships that the program accepts as credit-bearing. Working with these organizations is competitive and students will have to apply to them to be accepted. Students can choose to intern at other organizations of their choice after approval from the Director. 

Other internships that are not listed here may be taken advantage of to complete a practicum as well, such as those found at ReliefWeb. However, before applying we ask that you consult Dr. Sharma, ssharma@depaul.edu​
