Anthropology students can complete an internship for up to 6 elective credits. Students enroll in SBS 4890 for 1-6 credit hours in any semester and concurrently complete their internship according to the hour requirements detailed below. To begin your internship search, visit the CSBS Internship Database and make an appointment with your Internship Coordinator. If you have already secured an internship and would like to receive course credit, please complete the Course Permission Request form and allow up to 3-5 business days for processing.

SBS 4890 Overview:

This course provides an opportunity for a student to gain first-hand experience working with a local agency that aligns with the student’s professional interests. Students may find an internship independently, or they may work with the CSBS Internship Coordinator to identify and apply for internships before enrolling in this course. Students create work goals with their supervisors, and both parties remain continually accountable for the completion of these goals through evaluations and student reflections. In addition to the valuable hands-on experience and academic credit received, some students may find that the internship facilitates professional networking that may lead to an employment opportunity.

Students complete a contract with their internship site supervisor, submit bi-weekly journal entries, complete a final research paper (4-6 pages), and update their resumes. Supervisors must also agree to provide students with a mid- and end-term evaluation which accounts for a combined 40% of the student’s final grade.

You MUST HAVE A PERMISSION CODE to add this course. If you have already secured an internship, request a permission code. If you have not yet secured an internship, please meet with your Internship Coordinator to review your options.
