Partnership Advancing Globalized Education

Through the Bridge to Europe program and in collaboration with the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Education, the Russian and Eastern European Studies Center, and the Asian Studies Center, the ESC is offering a 3-credit internship opportunity, designed for a full-time Pitt undergraduate student interested in secondary social studies education. Preference will be given to students who are currently enrolled in the ESC Undergraduate Certificate Program and the Related Concentration in European and Eurasian Studies.

Under the supervision of a School of Education faculty member, a graduate student in Pitt’s Masters of Teaching (MAT) program, and an experienced high school teacher, the selected ESC undergraduate intern will develop a unit plan related to European history and/or current affairs that is suitable for a secondary social studies classroom in a Pittsburgh area school.  To do this, the intern will enroll in a 3-credit Education course in spring 2018 in order to complete a series of classroom observations, readings and reflections; co-teach several lessons with the MAT student supervisor, and develop a portfolio detailing these experiences.

To apply, please submit a completed application form, along with an unofficial transcript showing all previous college-level academic work, to

Applications are due by Monday, November 6, 2017.
