Internship in Jewish Studies (1-6 cr.)
S/F grading. May be repeated for a maximum of 12 credits. Does not count toward Jewish Studies major or certificate.
This course helps students connect their coursework with the professional world. Through internships related to Jewish Studies, students make practical use of their skills, learn new skills, and start to build professional contacts in the field of their interest. Students need to have a Jewish Studies faculty sponsor. Before registering, students need to submit an internship application that specifies, in consultation with the faculty sponsor, what criteria will be employed for evaluating the successful completion of the internship. Primary deadline is September 12, 2013, but applications will also be considered later than this date in the case of shorter/later fall internships.
Internships then have to be authorized by the Associate Director of the Jewish Studies Program, Professor Shaul Magid, before students can register. There are no prerequisites and students do not have to be Jewish Studies majors or certificate students in Jewish Studies. Number of credit hours is determined as follows: 1 credit hour - 50-99 internship hours; 2 credit hours - 100-149 internship hours; 3 credit hours - 150-199 hours, and so on.
Students are responsible for finding and securing their own internships. The internship must occur during the fall 2013 semester. Students cannot sign up for this course after they have begun or finished an internship. Internship hours cannot be counted until you are approved for JSTU-H 498 and enrolled in the course. Internships are graded S/F and thus do not count in the Jewish Studies major or certificate. All SPEA majors should enroll in an internship through SPEA.
