The purpose of an internship is to complement students’ academic coursework with “real world” experiences. An internship can be a valuable and rewarding experience and one that can help focus or refine career goals.
Internships are semester-long, supervised placements in a variety of settings, usually local agencies or businesses, where students learn and apply practical skills while contributing to the agency’s ongoing efforts.
WGSS Internships must be planned and requested at least one semester prior to the placement. Planning includes identifying a potential placement, making the initial contact/inquiries, and consulting with the WGSS Internship Coordinator.
