IPA470 International Internship Abroad (Fall, Spring)

Internships (also known as Experience Credit) in various organizations in the Strasbourg area are available to interested and motivated students. Openings vary according to the needs of the organizations and the students’ interests and background. In the past students have worked in such areas as community service (Refugee Center, Center for Information on Women’s Rights, hospitals, local church organizations, etc.), teaching (English language instruction in French schools), business and media (banks, communication agencies, newspapers, art galleries, museums, theaters, fashion, restaurants, etc.), and government (City International Relations department, Permanent Representation of Mexico with the Council of Europe, political parties, law offices,¬†etc.). Most internships require an intermediate level of French, though in some cases English is sufficient. Placements cannot be guaranteed and may not be within your field of study. Interested students should submit the Internship Request Form and resume as part of the application process and speak with their college advisor to find out whether there are any limitations or restrictions on how internship credit counts in their degree. First-year students placed in internships are registered under IPA 270. Registration under other subject rubrics is possible.
