Undergraduate students with a major or minor in sociology have the opportunity to complete an internship for course credit. The University works with a number of local and national organizations providing both paid and unpaid internships for students.
In order to receive academic credit towards your sociology electives requirement, you will enroll in ACE 400, a course taught regularly by Elizabeth Loun from the Career Studio. ACE 400 can be taken for one-to-three credits; one credit = 40 hours of work at your internship site. The first step is to secure an internship. Browse the lists below and check out current opportunities on the University's job board, Handshake. For help arranging an internship, contact Elizabeth Loun. She will then help you develop a contract with the organization that outlines your responsibilities as an intern that will need to be approved by the chair of the department of sociology.
There are four types of internships that you may complete and apply towards your sociology major or minor as a required elective course that are described in detail below.
If you are interested in interning at an organization, such as a place you already work at, but that is not on any of the lists above, it may be possible but you will need to work with Elizabeth Loun to pursue an approval process. You should allocate three-to-four weeks before the start of the semester in which you plan to intern to complete the approval process.
