Internships in Chicana/o Studies at the CRC
The Chicana and Chicano Studies Department offers a unique opportunity for students to gain an understanding and awareness of the vital presence and increasing significance of the Chicano population in California and throughout the nation. As an interdisciplinary program, students learn about the history, culture and contemporary issues of the Chicana/o experience. The department prepares students for careers in teaching and advanced degrees in humanities, social sciences, and law.
Prerequisites for a CHIC 499 internship: Senior level and approval by the department chair and instructor in charge of directing the study.
The CRC offers several interning opportunities for Chicano Studies Majors:
CRC Interns: By mutual agreement of the Dept chair, instructor, CRC Director and the student, interns complete projects that support the mission and goals of the CRC. They may also assist students who are researching questions on Chicano/Latino topics; referring them to the CRC Librarian as needed.
CRC Tutors: assist students who are taking Chicana and Chicano Studies Courses to successfully complete their class assignments by enhancing their research and writing skills. Students needing research assistance are referred to the CRC Librarian.Contact Sonia Velez for more information:Telephone: (657) 278-4815Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
