Academic Internships

An academic internship is a supervised, planned, learning experience in a work environment that is taken for academic credit. Each intern is assigned to a supervising faculty member.

Sociology majors, particularly those less interested in research, are encouraged to consider internships during their junior or senior year, especially for students that are not planning on pursuing graduate study in sociology.

Sociology interns get placement in a wide variety of settings based on future career interests.

Possible sociology internship areas

  • criminal justice
  • social services
  • non-profit
  • public school settings

In consultation with the faculty internship supervisor and the supervisor at the internship site, we aim to make sure the student has a rewarding and enriching experience and one in which the tools of the sociological perspective are employed.
