Off-Campus Opportunities

Three Albion College students photographed in 2011.Through an ethnic studies-related internship or off-campus experience, students gain hands-on experience with other racial or ethnic communities. The internship or experience may be completed in ethnic communities elsewhere in the United States or in study and research in ancestral communities or multi-ethnic communities outside the United States.

Upon returning to Albion, students schedule an appointment with ethnic studies faculty and submit an evaluation and journal report describing their experience and how it has enhanced their multicultural understanding of the world.

Students, working in consultation with the program chair, are encouraged to explore a variety of options for the internship experience.
