Academics / Departments & Programs / Philosophy / Student Experience / Internships

The philosophy department encourages its students, both majors and non-majors, to consider arranging an internship through the department. This involves either paid or unpaid work in a business, church or community organization under the supervision of a faculty member, who helps the student reflect on issues of moral and political philosophy, philosophy of gender, philosophy of art and other areas of philosophy.

For more information, contact the departmental internship coordinator or review the information at career development, including a list of local organizations that are eager to arrange internship placements.
