IN 395 - Internship Seminar
The Internship seminar aims to provide a framework for and theoretical support to the internship experience in which students will be placed at a company or organization in Buenos Aires for the duration of this course. The seminar format places group conversation and direct student participation at the center of the class dynamic. The seminar will serve as a forum where students will discuss and reflect on their internship experience in the context of the topics introduced in the course. These include: characteristics of the Argentine labor market, government and trade unions relations, youth and the labor market, the impact of gender and ethnic discrimination in the labor market, and poverty and unemployment. Students will be encouraged to introduce a comparative perspective with Latin and North American experiences in their critical reflections throughout the semester and in their final report.
