Jewish Studies Internships


The Jewish Studies Program strongly encourages students to add experiential learning to their undergraduate education.


There are many ways to arrange internships:

         Discuss options with faculty and the Director of the JS program.

         Ask faculty in courses you have taken about the possibility of becoming an undergraduate teaching assistant in a future term.

         Discuss options with community organizations and university offices that work with our program (see Resources page)

         Work with the Office of Career Development.



To get academic credit for the internship through the Jewish studies program (JS 1900):


         Once you have set up an internship, contact the Director of the JS program for a permission code to register for JS 1900.

         Make sure to register for the appropriate number of credits (1-4) in Peoplesoft based on the number of hours you work.

         Download the internship agreement from the website. Return the signed internship agreement to the Director of the program by the end of add/drop.

         Submit the required reports and the final report on time (see internship agreement for details).

         Have your site supervisor submit his or her evaluation by the last day of classes of the term. It is your responsibility to give this form to your supervisor and to make sure he or she knows the due date.
