The NAS Internship and Practicum

NAS students at the undergraduate and graduate levels are able to participate in a planned work experience related to personal career and academic goals. The internship and practicum help students learn about a possible career, apply knowledge gained in the classroom, develop skills, and better understand how individuals relate to the workplace.  Service to Native peoples in their communities and nations is a primary focus of the NAS internship and practicum experiences.  A sample of internship sponsors includes the Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Cherokee Nations, Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes, The American Indian Institute, The Jacobson House Art Center, Norman and Oklahoma City Public Schools, Indian Health Service, and Oklahoma Indian Legal Services
