Internships, Practicum and Other Experiential Learning Opportunities

The School of Humanities and its departments, centers and programs offer internships, practicum and other experiential learning opportunities that help to prepare students across a broad range of fields, interests, commitments and professions.

The table below shows all such opportunities offered across the School of Humanities.

Typically, internships or practica during the academic year offer academic credit while those during the summer do not. Almost all of the school's non-credit internships carry a stipend, whether standard, available by competitive application, or need-based. Students considering an unpaid, non-credit-bearing internship should contact Nyeva Agwunobi (nyeva@rice.edu), manager of student programs in the School of Humanities Dean's Office, or the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the relevant department or program, to learn about possible funding.

International students, note, an internship that is off the Rice campus and inside the United States may endanger your student visa. Please be sure to with the Office of International Students and Scholars.
