Sociology Internship & Career Opportunities

We have partnerships with a wide variety of organizations throughout the city, so you'll have every opportunity to gain experience in your areas of interest and build relationships with professionals in the field. Below is a sample of the many places our students have had internship and practicum experience.

“Internships gave me an inside look into organizations. It is an opportunity to immerse yourself and see firsthand how an organization works, how people get along, and how they do their jobs.”
