SCETL Internships - Employers

An internship is a requirement for every student who graduates with a major in Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership. We also strongly recommend internships for SCETL minors. Internships provide valuable leadership and professional experiences for our students, giving them the outside-the-classroom learning they need to forge ahead in the 21st century. 

We need employers like you who are willing to provide opportunities for our students to work and learn in your organizations and offices. Our students understand that through internships in government offices and agencies, non-profit and political organizations, as well as private offices and businesses, they will gain the necessary practical knowledge, contacts, and experience of the professional world indispensable to success in their post graduate endeavors and careers.

We're always looking for new organizations to host our students as interns for a semester. When you hire and supervise a hard-working and intellectually serious SCETL student, you become a part of their academic learning process.

"(The student's) enthusiasm for the work is contagious, and he is truly pleased to be part of something bigger, something that builds upon his experiences at the local community."

- Former supervisor, educational organization (August 2020)
