Important Announcements & Deadlines


Undergraduate Internship Opportunity


The College of Arts and Sciences (University of Pittsburgh) has approved internship opportunities for undergraduate students interested in Latin American Studies. The interns will work with the Center's outreach coordinator conducting research and developing lessons on Latin America for presentation in kindergarten through high school (K-12) classrooms as part of the Center's School Visit Program. Interns will be supervised during all stages of the program and required to work an average of 10 hours per week. The internship is equivalent to a 3 credit course and may apply toward the certificate in Latin American Studies. Also see College of Arts and Sciences webpage at: http://www.pitt.edu/~intern. Once you have arrived at the website, go to internship opportunities; then to foreign language – that should bring you to the internship for the Center for Latin American Studies' School Visit Program.

If you are interested in applying, contact: Rosalind Santavicca, Center for Latin American Studies, Outreach Program, University Center for International Studies, 4205 Posvar Hall, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15260; phone: 412 648 7397; email: alinda@pitt.edu
