Steps To Do An Internship In Economics or Social Justice at Roosevelt University
An Economics or Social Justice Internship requires working in an appropriate and relevant supervised job two days a week for 15 weeks or its equivalent (approximately 225 hours) for an organization, business, or government agency.
1. In Blackboard, under the RU Courses tab, enroll in the RU Community Organization: ESJ which is Economics and Social Justice Internship Program. See below how to enroll-subscribe to ESJ.
2. Fill out the Expression of Interest for Economics or Social Justice Internship form.
3. Internships can be done any semester during the calendar year but you will have to register for it by taking Economics 360/460 or SOCJ 360 during the Spring semester.
4. Internships available will be continually posted in Blackboard.
In the Blackboard RU Community Course: ESJ, Economics and Social Justice Internship Program, Internship Opportunities are listed in the “Information” menu item; Contracts are listed in the “Documents” menu item. *
Students may also propose an Internship place not in the Blackboard list.
Students are responsible for contacting the Internship place after consultation with the RU Economics Department Internship Director, Professor Steve Balkin. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
