ETHS 495A 3 - Ethnic Studies Internship Seminar

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 1
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 4

The internship seminar examines and reflects on the knowledge, skills, and experiences acquired from internship settings. Integrating the Ethnic Studies Program goals, the General Education COR guiding questions, and the internship experience, the course explores the following key questions: What does the internship mean to one’s studies as an Ethnic Studies major/minor and one’s intended profession? What are the ethical implications of interning or working at a site that serves primarily communities of color? In what ways do race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class intersect and shape power relations in the internship setting, and what is the student intern’s social location in the setting? What are the unique needs and contributions of the historically marginalized racial and ethnic groups and the new (im)migrant populations in our communities? How does the internship deepen one’s understanding of one’s own gifts, values, and commitments in building a just, compassionate world?

Prerequisite(s): Junior standing, ETHS 201  DJ, concurrent registration in ETHS 495B  or an internship course in a related field, and COR II.
