With the exception of the Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project (mostly based at UM Law School) and the Arab Studies Institute (which will be done via e-mail, phone, and meeting with the internship coordinator in Ann Arbor), all other internship opportunities are located in Dearborn or Southfield, about 40 minutes away from Ann Arbor, so students need access to a car.
Students can sign up for 2 credits (6 hours/week), 3 credits (9 hours/week), or 4 credits (12 hours/week). These are unpaid internships.
Interested students should contact Emily Lawsin (firstname.lastname@example.org), the internship faculty advisor, for more detailed information on the internships and for information on how to set up an interview with the organization of interest. This opportunity is intended to provide students with the opportunity to explore career options related to Arab American Studies, particularly in legal, social, cultural issues, and the arts.
