To enroll in WGS 4754 for internship credit
Students must select an internship site or project (these can be on or off campus; see below) and contact a WGS faculty member or faculty affiliate who can supervise the internship.
The students, faculty member, and, if appropriate, on-site supervisor work together to write a description of the internship and the student's responsibilities and fill out the internship application form.
Once the application form is completed, the student and faculty member submit it, along with the student's name, identification number, and the number of credits for the internship, to the WGS director, who forwards the information to the SOC Advisor (Brenda Husser). Only the SOC advising staff can enroll students for WGS internship credit.
Students must fill out a special application form that must be approved by the SOC chair in addition to the WGS Director.
Generally, faculty will approach qualified students concerning this opportunity.
The application form for teaching-assistant internships is available for the SOC Advisor (Brenda Husser); for teaching-assistant interns, this form substitutes for the WGS internship guide and application.
As in the regular internship enrollment process, only SOC Internship coordinator can enroll student in WGS 4754 for a teaching-assistant internship.
The Women's Center
The WC offers volunteer opportunities for students that can also count as internships for course credit.
Students must be accepted into these positions or projects and meet the expectations of the Women's Center staff to qualify
See http://www.womenscenter.vt.edu/get-involved/Placement.html for details, or contact Penny Cook, Women's Center Volunteer Coordinator, for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students who use the Women's Center as their internship site still need to fill out the WGS Internship Application form in order to get internship credit for the experience.
The Women's Center Director will generally serve as the faculty supervisor on these Women's Center internships.
