Interning at the U.Va. Women’s Center gives students hands-on experience developing skills that will be useful to them in the wide variety of fields they pursue after graduation. Applicants commit to a year-long internship that includes a three-credit fall semester course entitled “Women, Peace and Justice” (WGS), taught by Women’s Center faculty members. In the spring, students have the option of taking a second semester course through EDLF that is team-taught by the Women's Center faculty, or volunteering their time to fulfill their commitment to their internship.
