Title:Internship in Gender and Women's Studies

Students will participate in community organizations implementing theories studied. These will be organizations that understand and/or work toward gender equity, and/or sexuality equity. It will be undertaken through approved placement in an organization in the community or a student-defined project addressing these goals. The work culminates in written analysis of the internship experience in relation to coursework in GWS. All internships must be approved by the GWS Coordinator, but will be supervised by an appropriate faculty member within the GWS minor. For each credit hour granted students are expected to be involved in at least 45 hours of approved activity. The duration should normally occur over a minimum of three weeks.
