HISP 301 - Transnational Internship/Practicum

This internship course is designed to provide students with a personal experience of learning and working in an organization/business. This half-credit seminar aims to complement students’ immersion in a transnational and transcultural professional working environment. Students will learn how to observe, interact with co-workers, recognize cultural differences, compare teamwork and interpersonal interactions in different cultures, apply academic knowledge in a professional setting, and to identify opportunities to create value within the company.

The goal of the internship is to offer a transnational and cross-cultural window into the world that illuminates and complements the classroom learning: connecting the interdisciplinary knowledge and the liberal arts study with the professional world. Students will reflect critically and constructively on their academic internship and figure out how they would like to build on their internship experiences. To achieve this goal, the internship will help meld together the personal, the cultural and the professional; through the internship and its debriefing seminar, students will reflect on the meanings of the cultural implications of globalization and how it has affected the career paths available and the organization of work. Students will apply critical cultural studies learning to shape public action.
