Gaining Experience in Sociology

Although not required, you are strongly advised to gain hands-on experience by putting your theoretical knowledge into practice as an intern. Internship positions should be worked out in advance with your academic advisor or a faculty sponsor. Up to three semester hours may be earned. Mount Mercy students have recently interned as:

  • A crisis counselor, Foundation 2, Cedar Rapids, IA
  • An intern with child protective services, Clark County Social Services Dept., WI
  • A victim-witness coordinator assistant, Johnson County Attorney’s Office, Iowa City, IA
  • An intern, Area Cultural Alliance, Cedar Rapids, IA
