Internship Seminar in School
Administration and Supervision
This seminar is designed to provide an opportunity for interns to
supplement and reinforce their own field experiences under the
supervision of highly qualified, experienced school administrators,
both from the University faculty and school systems.
The internship – a requirement for all graduate-degree and
professional-diploma programs in Administration and Supervision –
may be partially waived only in instances of persons having served
in a bonafide full-time administrative or supervisory position.
Detailed documentation from the appropriate Board of Education will

credit hours. Successful completion of the University's supervised
internship program enables individuals to meet the New York State
internship requirement for certification as School Administrator
and Supervisor and School District Administrator.
