Students of sociology are always encouraged to gain practical experience while they are enrolled in the program at CSU Sacramento. Involvement in the internship program is an excellent way to explore the real world of sociology outside of the classroom. Most students consult with the Internship Coordinator and find a setting suitable to the student's desired sociological emphasis. We always have more internships than we have student interns, so finding an internship that will facilitate students' educational goals is rarely a problem.
Internship opportunities for Sociology majors are numerous and diverse. Some examples of available internships include:
- Youth Organizations: Koinonia Family Services, Coaching Corps
- Women's Programs: WEAVE, Whispers
- Community Organizations: International Rescue Committee, Mutual Housing California
- Research Opportunities: March of Dimes, Hands 4 Hope
- Health: Sutter Health, UC Davis - Center for Reducing Health Disparity
