SPEC 21: Winter Study Internships!

Imagine your Winter Study adventure!  Interested in pursuing internships in January 2022?

Internships amplify academic learning, empower professional development, and increase students’ career options.

The ’68 Center for Career Exploration sponsors a winter study course SPEC 21 Career Exploration:  Winter Study Internships!  This course designed to to introduce students to a variety of career fields not normally available to students via our on-campus recruiting program: government, music, film, television, the arts, publishing, journalism, theater, entrepreneurship/social entrepreneurship/startups, architecture, advertising, journalism, public relations, sports management, etc.

Participation in this winter study course will require students to integrate their Williams academic knowledge with practitioners in a work environment, make inferences about group and individual dynamics, and work on issues of substance that students are interested in. This hands-on experience will illuminate lessons learned inside and outside the classroom.

Students can submit applications for SPEC 21 Winter Study Internships via Handshake from Sunday, September 26, 2021-Sunday October 17, 2021 at 11:55 p.m. (Eastern Time).
