Students wishing to complete the IGS international experience requirement by completing an internship must meet the following requirements. The internship must involve at least 100 hours of work over at least six weeks.


The internship must be at an organization — whether private sector, governmental, or non-profit — centrally concerned with the wide range of issues covered in the IGS major. Students should meet with the IGS Study Abroad Liaison before their internship begins to discuss the internship arrangements and its suitability for the IGS International Experience requirement.

International Students

International students have completed the IGS international experience requirement by studying "abroad" at Brandeis University. You do not need to study abroad or complete an international internship to meet this requirement. International students seeking to enroll in a for-credit IGS internship should contact the Study Abroad Liaison to see if a for-credit internship can be arranged.
