Is it possible to do an internship in social sciences and get credit for it?

Yes. Visit our Internship site to see available opportunities and learn about the internship process. Periodically we offer POL 216 Civic Literacy, a service learning/field experience course. Contact your advisor or the Social Sciences Department for more information and availability.

POL 216 Civic Literacy
The course explores citizen’s rights and responsibilities in a democratic republic. Students spend one hour per week in the classroom focusing on academic inquiry and the acquisition of knowledge. Academic study compliments a minimum of 70 hours of practical work experience over the course of the semester, through field experience and/or service learning. Students engage in volunteer or paid placement in an agency or department of government, in a not-for-profit organization, or with a business that promotes the general welfare. Special Requirement: Class meets one hour per week, and over the course of the semester an additional 70 hours is required to be spent working in an appropriate service learning or field placement. Students may be required to have a CORI (Criminal Offenders Record Information) check.
