The Women’s Studies Program offers opportunities for academic and professional development through education abroad, group study, internships, scholarships, and student groups that enhance the experiences of students outside the classroom while honing the skills they’ve learned as part of their academic work.
Internship and undergraduate research opportunities exist with several of the affiliate faculty members, in addition to off campus organizations. Internship areas include supervised college teaching, placement with community-based organizations, and outreach projects for the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research. Internships with sponsoring organizations in the city of Fort Collins, in Denver, Colorado, or internationally provide exciting opportunities to work with a variety of constituencies at varying levels of challenge.
Internships at the Center are available each semester, including summers. Students work on ongoing center initiatives such as outreach, media & communications, marketing, grant-writing and research, working with alumni, development work, and public education.
Group Study allows you to deepen your learning experience by diving deeply into a topic of choice. It involves a more transformational learning experience for advanced students who have had exposure to a topic and want to engage in mastery of topic, acquire more skills and practice.

WSA is an academic support organization that produces a blog, holds coffee hours, and develops feminist dialogues throughout the year.
