Participants must have the fundamental background and skills required in their area of interest, as extensive training is not possible. Nearly all placements require a good knowledge of French, i.e., the equivalent of four college semesters.
Applicants are required to submit a resume (in English) with a cover letter in French. The cover letter should indicate the general objectives and motivations for interning in Strasbourg, as well as your address, phone number and e-mail address. After acceptance, Madame Hardenberg will work closely with students find the placement that best corresponds to their qualifications and interests.
Those interested in an internship with the Council of Europe (COE) will go through a different application process, so if you are interested in this unique opportunity, please contact your Admissions Counselor. For specific questions on the COE Internships, students are asked to work directly with the Director of the Strasbourg Center, Dr. Raymond Bach.

FRE/IPA/PSC 470/670, 3 Credits, Undergraduate/Graduate
This course provides internships in a wide range of organizations, businesses and professional sectors.
For most placements students should have experience in the field, and a good level of French.

Students may be asked to start their internship before the program officially begins or stay after the program ends. Students who accept longer assignments will be billed by Syracuse University for extended living arrangements.
Students are required to keep a daily journal of their activities and to write a final report. Final grades are based on the journal and report, the student’s presence on the internship site, weekly meetings with Madame Hardenberg, and the evaluation of the on-site supervisor.
