Each spring, the Institute for Global Studies is proud to offer GLOS 3402: Human Rights Internship. This three-credit course pairs students with a local advocacy group, and over the course of the semester, students complete 100 hours of internship work with a leading local human rights organization. Students in GLOS 3402 have interned with organizations such as the Human Rights Advocates, Center for Victims of Torture, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the Immigrant Law Center.

Students are also encouraged to use GoldPASS, CLA Career Services, and other on-campus resources to find internships.  Global studies advisors and peer advisors have a list of common internship organizations for global studies students and non-campus affiliated resources that they are happy to share with students via email.  To join our listserv and get weekly updates on internships and other real world opportunities, email a request to our peer advisors at
