EGST 0398 - EGST Internship

Credits: 3-6

Juniors or Seniors seeking to put theory to practice may intern at sites selected in consultation with their advisor(s). Students will be required to complete a learning contract, submit weekly logs, create a professional portfolio, be evaluated mid and end of semester by a site supervisor, and write a final paper which is topic specific and assigned by the instructor. Such papers might address specific concepts relevant to the student’s course of study. For example, a student working at Planned Parenthood might examine the role of women’s health clinics historically in the United States or in a particular region. When internships are taken during the semester, students will meet monthly to share experiences, struggles, and successes. Ethnic & Gender Studies students might consider selecting sites addressing urban planning, environmental health, public policy, and/or community literacy, among others.

Prerequisites: Junior or Senior standing.
