If you are a Global Studies major, it is a degree requirement that you complete an international internship (based in the US or abroad) for 1-6 credits.

Italian, French, and Comparative Literature majors are not required to complete an internship, but they are able to count an internship toward the credits required for the major if they complete an approved internship course. 

  1. Meet with Undergraduate Advisor for Your Major

  2. Request Internship Approval

    For all international internships, get your internship approved using this Internship Placement Request Form (DOC).

Travel Registration 

NOTE: If a program destination has a US Department of State or CDC travel advisory of 3 or 4, applicants must submit a completed Travel Risk Assessment (PDF) as outlined in the UWM International Travel Policy.
