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?

Internships are challenging work opportunities related to your intended career path or academic major. In addition to providing you with vital networking contacts, internships are opportunities to integrate your college learning into the professional world. An internship with DISC is an opportunity to build your resume and develop critical skills that will make you competitive in the work place: leadership, cooperation, critical thinking, and problem solving.

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.
