SOCY 139I Community-Engaged Research, Learning, and Internships

All Sociology students who are interested in internships, field experience, community-engaged research, and experential learning, should start with enrolling into SOCY 139I.

SOCY 139I provides an introduction to critical community engaged learning and research for social change as practiced within the Sociology Department. Students build out their own internship and/or research objectives centering ethical community engaged practices. Students will be supported in locating internships, learning about various approaches to community engaged research and learning, and connecting to a range of opportunities to engage both on and off campus.

SOCY 139I is offered in Spring 2024, and will be offered again in Fall 2024 and Winter 2025. The course satisfies an upper-division elective in the major as well as the PR-GE. 

Once students have taken SOCY 139I and have secured an internship position, they can work with Professor Amy Argenal on a field study independent class. An independent study allows students to get academic credit for an internship or related experential learning opportunity.
