The main goal of the Sociology Internship is to provide work experience that complements the theory-based academic program which will help the student identify future career paths, improve career skills, and develop a network of career professionals and mentors.

The internship provides students with a supervised field experience in a social agency or organization. The student is responsible for securing placement prior to course enrollment. Credit can be earned only for work completed during the semester in which the student is enrolled in the course. Read our Internship Spotlight to find out about an intern's experience!
