Ethnic Studies majors are required to take a 9-credit internship working with an entity that serves populations of color. The internship is graded and counts as nine of the total hours required for the major (51 credits).

Faculty advisors recommend potential internships and will help students find a placement. If students know of a place they would like to work, they need to check with their advisor prior to making a commitment. Once a student has selected a work place, he/she must prepare a proposal which is reviewed by the faculty of Ethnic Studies. Review the following documents for more information.
