The internship in Women Studies and Gender Studies, WGS 498, offers practical experience and training through a program of work and study within an agency or setting related to the student's principal area of interest. It is designed for students who wish to have WGS internship credit specifically listed on their transcripts as a way of enhancing educational or professional credentials or are interested in women’s issues but whose major or minor disciplines do not offer internship credit. WGS 498 allows students to prolong their departmental internship at their site of choice and helps help prepare for a career after UNCW. Students are encouraged to take an active approach to building their professional skills.
