The Women’s and Gender Studies Program has an active internship program that integrates academics with activism. Declared WMST minors have the opportunity to apply what they learn in the classroom in a community setting. Internships provide students with the opportunity to give back to the community, gain first hand experience, and make connections that may help them find employment after they graduate. Internships are not paid, but interns receive three academic credits by registering for WMST 4401: Internship in Women’s Studies.
Only students who meet the following eligibility requirements will be allowed to enroll in WGST 4401. These requirements are not waived under any circumstance.
Interns can work in any organization, as long as the project work on focuses on women, sexuality, or feminism. It is the student's responsibility to contact the organization they wish to work with and to make arrangements about the internship.
If you are interested in an internship, please contact Dr. Paula Eckard at (704)687-0021 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
