Many employers and admissions committees want to see how your coursework pairs with your work and internship experiences. The College of Liberal Arts and the Department of Sociology offer resources to help you find internship opportunities.

Financial Support for Unpaid Internships

The Barbara Newsome Internship Award offers a unique opportunity for sociology majors to earn $1,500 for otherwise unpaid internship experiences. The sociology department also encourages you to check out college-wide scholarships for unpaid internships.

Sociology Resources

Opportunities for volunteer positions and internships relating to sociology can be found on our Undergraduate Resources site, as well as in our newsletter, the Soc Scene.

College of Liberal Arts Resources

CLA Career Services is the central location for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities for the college; they can help pair you with an organization that is looking for volunteer and internship opportunities. CLA Career Services can also provide you with practice interviews, resume feedback, cover letter writing support, and more. You are always welcome to stop by Career Services in 411 Bruininks Hall or visit our CLA Career Counselor when they are in the Department, room 968 of Social Sciences Building, for drop-in hours.
