We strongly recommend internships for all WGSS majors and minors. They can help you:
Some WGSS double-majors and minors do internships under their other department. You may be able to use your WGSS knowledge in internships sponsored by other departments. Check with that department's website, chair, or adviser for more information. You would need to follow their departmental procedures and rules.
A great place to start:
The Eagle Opportunities at UWL Career Services - a comprehensive listing of established and local internship sites.
WGSS has developed relationships with several local internship sites. If you're interested in any of these issues, learn more about internship possibilities locally:
These agencies and organizations frequently advertise their internships on the Career Services website, but if you don't see this opportunity advertised, talk to Jodi Vandenberg-Daves about making a connection.
You can also develop your own internship. You could work with community coalitions, elected officials, grassroots or activist organizations, or you could design your own project, including a campus activism project.
If you have an idea, interest, setting, or specific organization in mind, Jodi can help you identify potential sites and contact people to customize your experience as a WGSS intern.
