The Sociology Department, in conjunction with the Center for Community Engagement and Career Education, offer a number of internship opportunities for our students.  These experiences provide students with important experiential learning and networking opportunities.  Sociology students completing the Human Services concentration are required to complete an internship.  We recommend that all sociology majors consider completing an internship prior to graduating.  

For more information, please contact Dr. Janet Armentor:

  • You can earn up to 3 units of credit for participating in an internship program during one semester of enrollment at CSUB.
  • Sociology Internships can be counted as an elective for Sociology minors and jajors. An Internship is required for the Human Services Concentration.
  • You may select from a list of available internships or submit a request to add an organization to CSUB's Community Engagement and Career Education (for example, your employer could take part in this program.)
