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.

For more information, please contact Elaine Draper, Internship and Service  Learning Coordinator.
