Arabic Flagship students have the opportunity to complete internships during their Capstone year in Meknes, Morocco. Students interested in government, social services, business, journalism, and many more fields will find internships abroad that allow them to combine their major and language studies.
Arabic Flagship students have interned with lawyers, women’s organizations, health clubs, newspapers, and more. By learning and working in Arabic you can reach Superior proficiency and become a global professional in any field.
We encourage our students to begin thinking about where they would like to intern as early as possible. The best internships are usually those that students find on their own. If you have a specific organization or internship site in mind, you can work with the Capstone resident director to facilitate the experience. However, finding your own internship is not required. The resident director and internship coordinator help our students find an internship, as well.
This is not like an internship in the U.S., where interns are given concrete tasks to complete. While there are exceptions, you should expect to observe and often take the initiative to find tasks. The internship component is very beneficial in order to achieve becoming a global professional and a culturally informed citizen.
