We encourage our Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature undergraduates to pursue an internship during their time at the U. Internships are a great way for you to test out potential career choices and find the type of employment and job environment that suits you. An internship can also help you develop professional skills and build your network—all factors that can help you land that first job upon graduation.
Students majoring in Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature and Studies in Cinema and Media Culture have completed internships at various sites in recent years. Previous sites most relevant to the cultural studies field include the MSROP Scholar Program, History Museum Fellowship, and NBC.
With prior written approval, and under certain circumstances, a semester-long internship can be approved as an elective course within the major. For more information about internships, contact our undergraduate advisor, Michelle Livingston.
