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.
Interested students should start by contacting Michael Witgen, the Director of Native American Studies, whose name and email address can be procured at 734-763-1460, for information on setting up an interview with American Indian Health. Students may also line up a faculty advisor who is not the Director of Native American Studies, though the director must be consulted. These are unpaid internships.
For work during the Fall and Winter Terms, students can sign up for 3 credits (9 hours/week), or 4 credits (12 hours/week). During the spring or summer terms, the number of hours double per credit. Evaluation of performance will be based on a 5-7 page paper submitted to the faculty advisor by the student at the end of the semester and comments on the student’s performance submitted to the faculty advisor by the designated supervisor at American Indian Health. Students are encouraged to serve for 2 consecutive semesters if time permits. This opportunity is intended to provide students with the opportunity to explore career options related to Native American Studies, particularly in health, management/business, social and cultural issues.
