Global Studies Internship Policies Beginning January 2017

GLBL 193

 

GLBL 193 is a one-credit controlled-enrollment course, in which you will receive a grade of pass or fail. You cannot register through Connect Carolina. GLBL 193 counts as general elective credit and cannot be used to fulfill any Global Studies major requirements. GLBL 193 satisfies the Experiential Education requirement of the College of Arts and Sciences.

To receive credit:

  1. The student must submit the proposal form below for official approval by the Internship Advisor and Faculty Advisor by the first day of classes in the semester in which the student will take GLBL 193. Approval for academic credit for the internship is required BEFORE beginning work. There are absolutely no exceptions.
  2. The proposed internship must involve at least 100 hours of work per semester.
  3. The on-site supervisor’s written evaluation of the intern must be received for credit to be granted.
  4. By the last day of class, the student must submit a journal chronicling their internship work to be evaluated by the faculty supervisor. This journal must include weekly entries of 150-400 words. Failure to complete the work component of the internship or the journal will result in a failing grade.

To apply for an internship for academic credit, you must complete the Global Studies Internship Contract and return it to Dr. Osterweil’s mailbox in room 2204 or her office, 2208 (osterwei@email.unc.edu) by the first day of class in the semester in which you wish to receive credit. No credit will be granted unless all signatures are present on the contract form.  Approval for academic credit for the internship is required BEFORE beginning work. Approved students will be registered for the internship course (GLBL 193) in the semester of the internship. Enrollment in GLBL 193 is restricted to Global Studies majors only.

Sponsorship of Internship

The work or mission of the organization or institution sponsoring the internship must be meaningfully connected to a Global Studies topic. It is entirely the student’s responsibility to find her or his own internship. Global Studies cannot serve as a placement service for students wishing to pursue internships.

Faculty Supervisor

Dr. Michal Osterweil (osterwei@email.unc.edu) will oversee the academic component of the internship. Dr. Jonathan Weiler will supervise additional students. Students will be required to submit a journal chronicling their internship work, to be evaluated by Dr. Osterweil at the end of the semester. Failure to complete the work component of the internship or the journal will result in a failing grade.

Other important information:

Paperwork must be completed and turned in before you begin your internship, and before the first week of classes, in order to 
receive credit. There are NO exceptions.
