In addition to the many University of Minnesota internship opportunities, the department offers an exciting community-based internship through its AFRO 1011 "Intro to African American Studies" course. Choosing to complete an internship solidifies knowledge gained through courses, allows for the application of this knowledge and for exploration of new areas, and prepares a student for future employment. For more information about internships, contact the Career and Community Learning Center, the Department of Undergraduate Advising, or email the Department of African American & African Studies at
