Internship Opportunities

Internships are valuable experiences for our students.

There are many internship opportunities available for students. While taking the courses that require community service hours, students will work for organizations such as Helena Food Share, God’s Love-Homeless Shelter, Habitat for Humanity, Montana Youth Homes, and Intermountain Children’s Home. Once students have taken the upper division courses they can become involved in more intense internship experiences such as working at law offices, the Pre-release Center, the Department of Justice, the court system, juvenile probation, and probation & parole programs. It is not unusual for students to turn internships into jobs after graduation.

Contact any Sociology/Anthropology professor and Nisan Burbridge, Internship Coordinator, at nburbridge@carroll.edu as well as visit the Carroll College Career Services Internship website.
