Description

Depending on the academic term, internship opportunities are available in local and national Arab American and Muslim American organizations which provide students experience in legal, social, or cultural fields, or the arts. Examples of internship placements include the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and the Arab American National Museum, both located in Dearborn, Michigan, as well as internship sites located in Ann Arbor like Jewish Family Services. Students with internship opportunities in Dearborn (about 40 minutes away from Ann Arbor) will need access to a car. There are also remote internship opportunities in which student work virtually with an organization like the educational website Sapelo Square: An Online Resource on Black Muslims in the United States.

Students start by contacting the internship faculty advisor for information about available internships and details on their specific requirements. Permission of an internship faculty advisor is required. Students can sign up for 2 credits (6 hours of work per week), 3 credits (9 hours of work per week), or 4 credits (12 hours of work per week). Mandatory credit/no credit will be given based on the student’s tasks and performance, and one final reflective paper submitted to the faculty advisor at the end of the term.

This opportunity is intended to enrich students with hands-on experience and a chance to explore career options related to Arab and Muslim American Studies. Contact Professor Abdul Khabeer at drsuad@umich.edu for more information.
