The following information is intended for the internship report in the Bachelor's programs. Different regulations apply to the term paper in the Sociology Master's program.
The completion of the internship will first be certified by the mentor and then finally by the internship office. The prerequisite for this is the recognition of the internship report by the mentor and a final discussion with him/her on the basis of the internship report.
After the recognition by the mentor, you have to hand in the internship report with all necessary forms to the internship office (or drop it in the P.O. Box No. 327 Building X Level C2). Please always include your e-mail address for easy contact!
The internship report usually has the form and shape of a written term paper. It is expected that one part of the report is dedicated to the description of the field of practice and the concrete activities, while another part should deal with the question of the applicability and relevance of the sociological/political science knowledge in the field of practice (see reflection). The exact length and content of the internship report can be agreed upon by you and the mentor (usually 8 to 10 pages).
The following structure is common, for example:
The internship report should include a longer chapter reflecting on your own activities and experiences during the internship.
The primary purpose is not to describe the field of practice or the problems of practice in sociological/political science terms or to write a sociological analysis of problems of practice. This is possible and can be interesting, but should not be the focus.
Rather, you are required to reflect on your own internship experiences in the particular field of practice in relation to your studies. On the basis of your own experiences you should reflect on the relationship between theory and practice. In the internship office you can look at internship reports for orientation.
