Social Science Internship Program

Why Hire a Social Science Intern?

The world is changing at a rapid pace. The Faculty of Social Science is committed to intellectual inquiry that uncovers problems and solutions that affect the human condition. We produce new and innovative research and teach students the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference across industries in the private, public, and non-profit sectors.

The Social Science Internship Program allows undergraduate students registered at main campus the opportunity to accept full-time, paid (hourly or salaried), career-related internships for course credit. These students can join your organization for short-term (10 - 16 weeks) or long-term (8 - 16 month) work terms.

Please see below to explore how a Social Science intern can contribute to your organization, and schedule a virtual meeting with Kate to learn more.
