Finding an Internship

  • Students find out about internship opportunities the following ways:
  • When an organization contacts the department with internship opportunities, we email that information to our students.
  • Students can go to the Office of Experiential Learning at UCF.
  • Students can approach organizations seeking opportunities.


  • Interested students should contact the Internship Coordinator at the Sociology Department –Dr. Amy Donley
  • Once a student has found an internship two things need to happen:
  • They must have the Contract Agreement Forms filled out by their internship supervisor at the organization and return to Dr. Amy Donley
  • They must set up an appointment with Dr. Amy Donley to fill out a course registration agreement that will enroll them for course credit.

Course Requirements

  • Students receive a grade for the internship course. This grade is based on the following: completion of hours, a field journal, a final paper, and an evaluation from their internship supervisor.
