Student Internships

What is DISC?

The Digital Islamic Studies Curriculum (DISC) was founded in 2013 at the University of Michigan and is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. DISC is a unique initiative that works in collaboration with faculty liaisons at over a dozen Big Ten Academic Alliance member institutions in order to define, create and implement a curriculum that will offer a broad set of courses that investigate Islam as a religion, as a civilization, as a myriad of cultural and historic traditions, and as the basis in some settings for political ideology.

Why intern with DISC?

Digital Islamic Studies Curriculum (DISC) Social Media and Communications internships are paid positions which provide an opportunity for students at participating Big Ten institutions to gain valuable experience related to their intended career path or academic major. Interns have the opportunity to apply their college learning to the promotion and development of the DISC program, build their resume, and develop skills related to their academic and career interests.

What opportunities are there?

For the Fall of 2018, we are continuing the expansion of our internship program and will have openings at each of our active partner campuses for a Communications and Social Media Intern.
