Want to work in your community while getting paid and earning academic credit?
The Carlson Center has announced a variety of paid community internships that span both Winter and Spring quarters and which can be used towards Sociology major requirements! The Undergraduate Community-Based Internship (UCBI) program, developed in partnership with the UW Career & Internship Center, provides opportunities for undergraduates to grow professionally and personally, examine issues of social justice, gain an understanding of the diverse communities in Seattle, and explore career paths in the public and non-profit sectors. There is an info session tomorrow, October 19th from 1:00 – 2:00pm in MGH 136 and the applications are due this coming Monday October 22nd by 11:59pm!
If you apply and are selected for an internship through UCBI, Sociology majors can register for SOC 404 in Winter quarter as a way to combine academics with their internship while earning 5 credits towards upper division Sociology major requirements. SOC 404 combines a small seminar-style class that meets once a week with your out of classroom experiential learning component. Students then have the option to earn up to 5 credits of SOC 399 in Spring quarter which can be used towards the Sociology elective major requirement. International students can use these internships and SOC 404 for CPT and are encouraged to apply. DACA students are also eligible!
SOC 404 is designed to combine experiential learning in the workplace with critical reflection about practical and theoretical issues of work and organizations. Students also examine their experiences with respect to theory and research through informal and formal writing assignments. Students attend the 2-hour weekly seminar in addition to their internship.
For Winter 2019, SOC 404 meets Tuesdays, 11:30-1:20, SLN 19939, Writing credit
