Department of Ethnic Studies - College of Letters and Science - University of California, Berkeley

Programs / Undergraduate

Internships

All students in the department are required to satisfy four units of 197 field study (180 hours total) in their respective major doing community service work with organizations and programs that engage and support underrepresented communities on-campus and in the surrounding community. The idea is that students can apply and further enrich their knowledge of the study of communities of color and the qualitative appreciation of their agency and varied productions.

Below are some of the volunteer and internship sites that previous majors have used to fulfill their 197 field study requirement.
