Students can pursue an independent research project while working at a Jewish public cultural or social institution as a supervised intern. Students will be expected to work eight hours per week during the semester (112 hours total) or its equivalent during the summer. Students’ pre-approval by both the Department and the host institution is required. In addition to their internship hours, students are required to prepare a report, paper, or other project related to the nature of the internship, working with a faculty advisor with the approval of the Department’s Undergraduate Director. Internships are open to all Rutgers undergraduates. Students may do more than one internship as long as no two internships are at the same institution. Only one internship may count toward the requirements for the Jewish Studies major or minor.
