Sociology Internships

Sociology Program

During their senior year, Sociology majors are required to complete an intensive internship. While interning, students are required to complete a minimum of 45 hours of on-site experience. Students work closely with their faculty advisor and internship site supervisor throughout their off-campus experience. The internship gives students a chance to apply their sociological knowledge, to be a participant/observer in an organization or agency related to career interests, and to contribute to the community while studying.

The internship also introduces students to employment possibilities while they receive valuable field experience and build community contacts and employment references. The student's faculty advisor ensures the student is maximizing their potential during the internship experience, and is applying and developing marketable skill-sets. The internship experience prepares students for the competitive job market and for scholarships for advanced study.
