Internship, Scholarship, Conference, and Job Opportunities

Students can participate in an internship by enrolling for either Soc 398 or Soc 498, and they can earn up to a maximum of 8 units of elective credit for their sociology degree. To be approved for an internship, students should have completed at least three upper division courses in sociology, arrange a work agreement with an approved agency, and be willing to commit the equivalent of 30 hours of agency work for each unit of credit they expect to receive. The intern must also meet with the Department's Internship Coordinator during the quarter, and submit a journal of activities and a short final paper illustrating how sociological concepts gleaned from their sociology courses have been applied to the work setting. A list of approved agencies, as well as other program details, can be obtained from the Coordinator.  Announcements concerning some potential internships are also included below.  However, students should also feel free to arrange their own internship placement.

For more information, please contact Dr. Cristina Bodinger-deUriarte, Internship Coordinator.

Internship Announcements



Cal State LA offers over 300 scholarships. And not only are most awarded to students currently enrolled but many are given to students pursuing specific majors. Sociology awards three such scholarships: the Francesca ("Kiki") Alexander, the David Miller, and the Richard and Erika Nahrendorf.

To be considered automatically for all scholarships, it is recommended that students file a General Scholarship Application, along with a letter of recommendation, in April of each year. Further details about specific requirements and qualifications can be obtained by contacting the Scholarship Office or the Department's Office Staff.

Scholarship announcements are listed below.
