Internship Program (SOC 494R)

Sociology Internship

The Sociology Department has a wonderful internship program. Participating in an internship is a useful way to test possible career options and an excellent way of applying what you have learned in a classroom to experiences in organizations and agencies in the "real world." Sociology students have had internships in a variety of private industry, non-profit, and government settings -- such as:

ACLU Emory's Center for Women International Rescue Committee
CNN Fox News Make-a-Wish Foundation
DeKalb County Juvenile Court Georgia Commission on Family Violence Turner Entertainment

All interns are expected to write two papers related to their work and attend several seminar sessions. For a general overview of the Internship Program, click here.
