AMCULT 390: INTERNSHIP IN ARAB AMERICAN STUDIES
AMERICAN CULTURE 390
Internship opportunities available at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (www.adcmichigan.org), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (www.cairmichigan.org), the Arab American National Museum (www.arabamericanmuseum.org), and Michigan Citizens for Palestinian Rights this winter term. All internship opportunities are located in either Dearborn or Southfield, about 40 minutes away from Ann Arbor, so students need access to a car.
Students start by contacting Prof. Alsultany (firstname.lastname@example.org), the internship faculty adviser, for information on the internship positions available and to setting up an interview with the organization of interest. Students can sign up for 2 (6 hours of work), 3 credits (9 hours of work), or 4 credits (12 hours of work). Mandatory credit/no credit determined based on two short papers (one at mid-term and the second at the end of the term) submitted to the faculty adviser by the student and comments on the student’s performance submitted to the faculty adviser by the sponsoring organization. This opportunity is intended to provide students experience with the chance to explore career options related to Arab American Studies, particularly in legal, social, and cultural issues and the arts.
