Social Justice Internship

WGS offers for-credit social justice internships every semester. Students are encouraged to find their own agency or organization. For ideas, please see our list of previous internship sites below. Students are responsible for applying for and securing the internship before the semester begins. The internship will run parallel to an academic semester, and students are required to complete a minimum 135 hours over the course of the semester.

A social justice internship provides students with the opportunity to give back to the community and become directly involved in working with social justice issues. WGS believes that a social justice internship can help students become more active, open, and engaged citizens.
