Digital Research Internship Program
In the Digital Research Internship program, undergraduates gain technical and organizational skills and build a diverse portfolio of technology projects. Students, working on a scrum team, receive tangible experience in technology and feminist leadership while working on the digital humanities and digital scholarship projects of Tulane faculty in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Students work in technical areas such as digital media, digital archiving, web design, database development, coding, design thinking, UX/UI, and audio/visual editing. This paid internship supplements students’ majors and minors when seeking employment or prestigious technology internships. All majors and skill levels are welcome to apply as long as you have an interest in feminist technology, working on a SCRUM team, and a willingness to learn with a group and independently.
In the Information Technology Internship program, undergraduates support technical operations within a non-profit research and education center. Undergraduates work in technical areas such as digital research, asset management, IT customer service, and Classroom/AV support. This paid internship supplements students’ majors and minors when seeking employment or prestigious technology internships.
