Undergraduate and Graduate Internship Program
RLGS has launched an internship program for undergraduate and graduate students. Students can intern at local non-profit, educational, or non-governmental institutions, using the for-credit option detailed below or as an extracurricular option.
The New Yorker's take on internships. Ours are safer - and help you strengthen your professional skills, not your arm muscles.
The Internship in Religious Studies (RLGS 2980, 3980, or 4980) is designed to provide undergraduate majors and minors, and graduate students in our M.A. and joint Ph.D. programs with valuable experience in non-profit, educational, faith-based, governmental, and related organizations. It helps students translate the knowledge and analytic skills learned in RLGS courses into a professional context, while exploring potential career paths and professional opportunities. Students interested in pursuing an internship must meet with the Undergraduate Adviser at the start of the previous quarter to discuss internship goals and identify potential placements.
Summer can be an ideal time to pursue an internship. Internships do not need to be in the Denver area: students may pursue approved internships anywhere in the United States or abroad.
Please note: internships may be taken for credit or may be pursued as an extracurricular activity. Both options will help students gain valuable real-world experience and build their resumes.
RLGS internship placements can include a variety of organizations and foci. Students interested in pursuing an internship during the 2012-2013 academic year OR Summer 2013 should contact Professor Andrea L Stanton to discuss their interests and goals.
Placements in the Denver area may include non-profit organizations like the Abrahamic Initiative, which works to foster understanding of and appreciation for the three Abrahamic faith traditions. They may also include schools like St. Elizabeth's, which focuses on providing opportunities for academic, social, spiritual, and artistic growth to a socio-economically diverse student body. Other current internship opportunities include Denver Sister Cities International and Women4Women Knitting4Peace.
