Sun, September 1, 2013
The Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies, a multidisciplinary institute that integrates several centers and programs devoted to promote interest in the region, is the oldest Latin American Studies program in the United States and one of the best worldwide.
LLILAS has an unpaid internship program designed to provide UT students with the opportunity to gain professional experience by learning about the work of multiple programs within LLILAS or to develop research skills by working with some of our most distinguished Latin Americanist faculty. Our institute is a vibrant and fast-paced environment where students will have the opportunity to interact with foreign students, visiting Latin American professors, government officials, politicians, and private sector representatives. The internship is open to undergraduate students enrolled in any UT college or school who may be interested in pursuing graduate degrees or working on Latin American issues. Interns must be available to work about 10 hours a week from late August 2013 to the last week of classes of the fall semester (schedules are negotiated with the respective supervisor). If you would like to earn liberal arts elective credit for your LLILAS internship, learn about the LA 320wb and LA 110wb course options at: http://www.utexas.edu/cola/orgs/lacs/Students/Courses/Internship.php.
