The Jewish studies internship program offers students the opportunity to enrich their organizational skills and gain work experience in a variety of settings in the Columbus Jewish community. At the same time that the students earn academic credits, they contribute needed services to organizations and institutions.
Credit: The number of credits earned depends upon the number of hours worked. You can earn up to 3 credit hours per semester for up to 9 credits. You must register for JS 4191 within the allowable add/drop period to receive credit.
Registration: Students register for an internship in Jewish Studies after consultation with Thomas Beyl, Jewish studies advisor. Intern sites will be selected in consultation with relevant institutions and organizations.
Requirements: In addition to the hourly requirement at the internship site, students complete written assignments for the faculty advisor. These may include 1) a book critique and 2) a journal written during the course of the internship. In addition, the on-site supervisor evaluates the intern's performance. For more information contact Thomas Beyl.
