The Women's and Gender Studies internship is open only to WGS undergraduate Majors and Minors. The internship consists of practical work and functions as a counterpart to the academic and more theoretical focus of other Major or Minor courses. Therefore, the internship should be scheduled towards the end of the Major or Minor.
A paper that ties together practice and theory is required and is written under the supervision of the WGS Director. Readings and classes may also be required. In the past, students have interned with such organizations as Girl Scouts, N.C. Equity, The Women's Center, WomenNC, The Salvation Army of Wake County, the Wake County Women's Center, and Planned Parenthood.
