If you wish to arrange your own internship, please be sure to get approval from Professor Gallon before registering.
To register for an internship, students must complete a registration form and Internship Learning Contract.
The registration form requires signatures from the site supervisor and the Africans Studies director.
2. Students are required to complete Parts I, II, and V of the Internship Learning Contract. Recognize that this contract stipulates your hours and responsibilities while at site, and informs the site supervisor of his/her responsibilities to complete a midterm and final evaluation. It also provides the faculty supervisor with all necessary contact information, so it should be completed clearly and legibly.
3. Students wishing to enroll in an Africana Studies internship must read closely the Muhlenberg College Internship Manual, as it contains information on internship etiquette, liability, student, faculty, and supervisor guidelines. It also includes copies of the Internship Learning Contract, midterm and final evaluation forms.
Please contact Professor Gallon should you have questions about an Africana Studies internship.
