Internships are a very important facet of the curriculum at Goucher College. As such, the philosophy and religion faculty members consider well-structured internships to be essential to a student's education. The department helps students participate in placements in business, government, civic organizations, coalitions, and volunteer groups. Each student designs a plan with a member of the department to develop a clear goal and a rigorous method of pursuing it. The variety of internships that have been completed under the supervision of this department is evidence of the flexible and creative applicability of degrees in philosophy and religion. Students find internship opportunities through the Career Development Office [LINK], through faculty and staff members, or on their own.
A detailed description of the off-campus experience is published by the Career Development Office each year and fully describes the guidelines and timetable for internships. Students interested in arranging an internship in economics should contact their individual academic advisers.
