Community and Corporate Internships in Sociology
Winter 2020 - I went into this course thinking it would be a breeze since there's only 5 meetings & most of the effort is being put towards your internship. While I probably did rather well, I had to stay very on top of the assignments and scheduling appointments. There is a 2 page weekly assignment due on Sundays based off one or two weekly readings from academic journals. Warning: these do take time. You must read the reading in depth and write these short papers with concise, valid information. So give yourself time for them. He rarely gives 100%'s on these. Schedule ALL your meetings as soon as possible, as Jay is busy and can't accommodate last minute changes, especially towards the end of the quarter. If you miss / can't reschedule one meeting, you cannot pass the class. Theres an 8-12 page final paper based on your internship, 2 readings and 3 other academic sources. All in all, I learned way more than I thought I would in this class. But you have to make time for it and put effort in. Overall, pretty easy A if you follow the guidelines.
