Finding an Academic Sponsor for a GEN ST350 Internship is the responsibility of the student:
Approach a professor that teaches in the area of your internship. For example, if you have a marketing internship, you can contact faculty members in the business school, marketing, or communications.
Ask friends for recommendations of professors they have had. They would know better than anyone on campus about the professor’s teaching style and personality.
Departmental advisors can give you a list of professors that typically work with independent study students. Students often engage in internships outside of their major so feel free to approach other departments.
The Center for Advising, Diversity and Student Success in Mary Gates Hall provides pre-major advising and can recommend faculty members as well.
Send faculty an e-mail or go to office hours and try your luck. Bringing a completed GEN ST 350 application to the meeting shows initiative and organization.
