Internships

Language majors and minors have interned at the following institutions in Providence:

Diocese of Providence: Spanish majors and minors interested in immigration issues have the opportunity to work in collaboration with nationals from a variety of countries and guide them through the preparation of the United States citizenship exam.

French-American School of Rhode Island: Senior French majors work with a classroom instructor to design, implement, and facilitate learning plans in this unique bi-lingual and bi-cultural immersion school (K-8) accredited by the French Ministry of Education and the State of Rhode Island.

International Institute of Rhode Island: Senior language majors and minors work with individuals and families emigrating to the U.S. from all over the world in order to facilitate integration into a new culture.
