Internships & Service-Learning

Internships + service-learning

As you explore the field of sociology, we encourage you to consider internships and service-learning experiences. They give you a chance to develop both technical and transferable skills while making vital professional contacts with others in the field.

Enrich your degree with an internship

There are ways to work with a faculty sponsor and earn academic credit for an internship related to your study of sociology. Ask your academic advisor about these opportunities.

Internships offer you a chance to develop both technical and transferable skills while making vital professional contacts with others in the field. Many students begin exploring internship opportunities, including overseas study programs with internships, as early as their freshman year.

Learn more about internships, including the possibility of receiving credit, through the Walter Center for Career Achievement, where you will find many resources for both domestic and international internships.
