The Internship & Field Experience Program is designed to provide students with practical and applied experience in Sociology, Anthropology, and/or Criminology. This program provides an opportunity for students to take what they have learned in the classroom and apply their learning to a work environment while also developing practical skills and professional connections. The internship/field experience is managed jointly by the SAC Internship Coordinator & Site Supervisor. During the program, students will work the required number of hours, complete required writing & professionalization assignments, and receive a favorable evaluation from the employer before receiving credit. Internship/field experiences are intended for junior and senior-level students.
If you are interested in completing an internship/field experience in Sociology, Anthropology, or Criminology, the first step is to meet with Dr. Baker.
