Women and Gender Studies internships provide students with the opportunity for hands-on application of the research and theories they've studied in their classes. For a 3-credit internship, students volunteer 10 hours per week for a term in an organization whose work benefits women.
Many students complete their internships in local, regional, or campus organizations. Other students complete their internships in feminist agencies around the country and the world. For many students, the internship is a path to a career. For others, it is an experience that helps them develop valuable skills that they are able to use in whatever work they choose.
