Internship Opportunities

The internship program is a highlight of the Social Sciences Department. In the internship, students work alongside social service and mental health professionals directly in the settings where they work. Students might be supervising children in afterschool programs, counseling troubled teens who are living in a residential facility, be an assistant in a therapeutic nursery school or work with women who live in a shelter for victims of domestic violence. Students have held internships at many places including:

  • Department of Children and Families
  • Dana Farber Cancer Institute
  • Second Step
  • Sunrise Senior Living
  • Life Choice Hospice
  • Homes for Families
  • Newton Public Schools - Cabot
  • Bournewood Hospital
  • Mass Citizen's for Children
  • Lasell Village
  • Riverside Community Care - Elliot House
  • New England Center for Homeless Veterans
  • Franciscan Hospital for Children
  • Boston Community Leadership Academy
