Application Process – Social Work Internship and Field Placement (Master’s Level)

The Counseling Center at NC State offers Field Placement and Internship Opportunities for Graduate Students in all mental health disciplines.  Our training program reflects the values of our multidisciplinary agency.  We strive to create a cohort of trainees from diverse disciplines, training programs, practices, and backgrounds.

We prefer individuals are able to make the commitment to do a full academic year of training.  This would include your Field Placement in the Fall semester flowing into your second semester in Spring semester, but other options will be considered on a case by case basis.  Our center allows for a strong clinical experience with a wide range of issues.  This is an unpaid opportunity but training and supervision are provided.

To apply you will need to Complete our Application where you will provide us with:

  1. Your Professional Vita or Resume
  2. Letter of Interest which outlines your professional goals as well as describing why you are seeking to work at the Counseling Center and with the university population.
  3. Response to some short answer questions that help us to identify your goals and interests in your training experience.

Our deadline for application for full consideration is March 8, 2022.  It would be best to contact us to let us know that you plan to submit if you are not able to do so by that date.

Complete your Application Online which forwards it on to the training coordinator.

Once your application materials have been received, selected candidates will be invited to an interview with training program staff. We hope to complete the interviews quickly and should be able to reach a decision by mid-April. The number of Practicum students and/or Interns selected each year depends on a variety of factors, including office space availability, availability of supervisors, and the number of qualified applicants. We typically have more students interested in training here than we have space available, and obtaining a placement may be competitive.

Look forward to hearing from interested trainees!
