This course pairs with RCCORE 302.001 (Community-Based Internship Reflection Seminar) and both are required for UM students participating in the Semester in Detroit Program. This class is not open to students who have not been formally accepted into the Program.

A core requirement of the Semester in Detroit experience is an internship with a Detroit community-based organization. With the support and guidance of Semester in Detroit faculty, students and organizations both participate in the placement process, thus providing a challenging academic experience for students while contributing toward the organization’s mission and community agenda. Students develop a work plan early in the semester in conjunction with their direct supervisors. Faculty stay in regular communication (including site visits) with both students and organizational partners during the semester. Past internship opportunities have included experiences in community organizing, community development, public journalism, youth outreach and mentoring, urban agriculture, arts education, and more.

  • Deepen understanding of the contemporary context that underpins student internship experiences in Detroit – i.e. the social, economic, cultural, and political;
  • Share student internship experiences and accumulated knowledge with the wider world through public forums such as community blogging, presentations, and other mediums.
