Internships

The RTTR internship experience is designed to provide an opportunity for students to make the change from classroom to RTTR settings. Within the structured environment of a university approved agency/site and under the direct supervision of a university approved professional in the field, the student receives guidance in transitioning from the academic setting to the role of an employee in a “real life” worksite.
