Academics: Internships

Internship Opportunities

The philosophy department encourages its students, both majors and non-majors, to consider arranging an internship in the department. This involves either paid or unpaid work in a business, church, or community organization under the supervision of a faculty member, who helps the student reflect on issues of moral and political philosophy, philosophy of gender, philosophy of art, and other areas of philosophy.

For more information, contact the departmental internship coordinator, Prof. David Hoekema (616.526.6750,, or review the information on the Career Services web page.
