Interships in International Studies
The Charles B. Rangel Center for Public Service
The objectives of the ISP internships are to provide students with valuable work experience and to familiarize them with the workings of international agencies. The internship is undertaken through the Internship Seminar (INTL 251).
Students have an array of internships to choose from. They are eligible to participate in internships with diplomatic missions to the U.N., with U.N. agencies (when accessible), international businesses, research institutes, Non-Governmental Organizations and agencies sponsoring programs overseas. Students with an interest in a secondary school teaching career, emphasizing global studies, may undertake a teaching internship in a city high school, after appropriate preparatory work in the School of Education.
The Internship Seminar, which carries three credits, will require a weekly journal and a final term paper on a subject related to the focus of the internship organization.
Students have the option of taking a second semester of the seminar (INTL 252) for three more credits. Students may also work as interns during the summer for 3-6 credits under faculty supervision.
**Students are required to search for internships on their own. The Program's Director, and larger staff, can assist in the search if possible. Students are encouraged to refer to the I.S. listserv and other outside sources for potential internships.
