An internship is an opportunity for students to gain practical hands-on experience by working for an organization, company, government agency, or non-profit. Internships allow students to explore potential career paths, bolster their resumes/CVs, strengthen their applications to graduate school and enhance their employability.

Anthropology Internships

Anthropology internships are coordinated by the anthropology internship coordinator, Dr. Jennifer Sweeney Tookes. Students work with Dr. Sweeney Tookes to procure and complete internships relevant to the discipline that fit with their interests and ultimate career directions. Previous anthropology interns have engaged in a wide range of experiences, such as: assisting with a Citizen Farmers Academy; engaging with the Willow Hill Heritage and Renaissance Center; work in the Georgia Bureau of Investigations morgue; research assistant to a project on tourism in Argentina, and in-office experiences in a local law firm in Statesboro. Anthropological approaches and perspectives are productive in a wide range of locations, so students are encouraged to think creatively about internship sites and projects.

Sociology Internships

Sociology majors work with Dr. April Schueths, the sociology internship coordinator, to find an internship opportunity that suits their professional interests and meets their specific needs. Recent sociology graduates have taken internships with organizations serving children (e.g., CASEGA & Behavioral Pediatrics of Rural Georgia), working with mental healthcare providers (e.g. Pineland Mental Health & Coastal Harbor Behavioral Health), legal offices, human resource departments, and even The White House. After their internship experience, many of our recent students have been able to secure employment at the place they interned or a similar organization.
