Social Science

The Social Science Program encourages its undergraduate students to participate in internships with the types of organizations that they would like to work in the future, whether public agencies, private companies, nonprofits, or educational institutions. Likewise, social science graduate students are encouraged to do internships for three units of graduate credit, and most do take advantage of this opportunity. Many of social science’s students participate in internships on campus, but a variety of community organizations, including those listed below, have offered internship opportunities to social science students.
