The School of Social Sciences Gateway program invites undergraduate social sciences students to participate in internship opportunities for course credit. Participating in an internship is a great way to explore career options and gain valuable work experience.

Information for Students: One of the best ways to decide if a career suits you is to participate in paid or unpaid internships. Internships help students develop a variety of skills, enabling students to put their knowledge to work and secure jobs after graduation. Whether completed in the United States or abroad, social sciences students who participate in internships can earn course credit through SOSC 221 - Professional Excellence for Social Scientists, SOSC 421 - Social Sciences Internship (domestic), and SOSC 422 - Social Sciences Internship (abroad).

Information for Employers: The School of Social Sciences welcomes employers to partner with us to create valuable and meaningful work experiences for our students. Whether a one-time internship or recurring position, we can connect you with eager social sciences students who possess a variety of skills necessary in today’s workplace.
