In this subject a student, under academic supervision, undertakes a sociological research project or prepares a portfolio of work in an organisation outside the university, such as a trade union, social movement, women's organisation, social service provider, government or non-government organisation or business organisation. The project will be determined jointly by the student and the organisation concerned.

If primary research is carried out during the internship, ethics approval is the responsibility of the host organisation.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of this subject students should:

  • Apply disciplinary knowledge in the context of being placed at a host organisation and being immersed in its culture;
  • Have well-developed communicative, analytical, research and writing skills and be able to critically evaluate evidence;
  • Have practical and professional skills and ethics enabling the provision of future consultancy-type research services;
  • Have high-level interpersonal, written and oral skills developed through interaction in various contexts and with a range of people.
