Internships

We are currently accepting intern applications for Fall 2021.

Are you interested in a field study or internship at the Women's Center? Do you want to work with the Women’s Center to educate our campus community about topics of relationship violence, healthy relationships, or gender equity?

The Women's Center hosts internships designed to meet the hours and work requirements of a 3 credit hour undergraduate internship. Most folks who complete our internships for credit are in Human Development, Sociology, Women and Gender Studies, Communication, or related fields. We have had folks complete for credit through other departments, including Psychology, Neuroscience, Leadership and Social Change, and more. We also do accept applications from folks not seeking credit, however, we ask that you plan to participate as if you were pursuing 3 credit hours in terms of time commitment, workload, etc. for the semester. 

Internship Eligibility requirements:

  • Completion of all elements of the application process
  • Current academic Good Standing
  • Ability to hold Intern Training dates for Fall 2021 and attend intern training
  • Ability to commit to 8-10 hours per week, or approximately 3 credit hours for the semester
