The Political Science Department offers internships with federal, state and local public agencies, as well as with non-government organizations (NGOs) that address community development and global issues such as political refugees, adequate housing, fair wages, and migrant education.
Participating in an internship program has many advantages. Many interns find their experience provides guidance for future educational decisions, helps hone valuable skills,and may provide an entree to a permanent job in your area of interest. In the more traditional academic sense, internships provide an exciting and unique method of gaining substantive knowledge. Another great advantage is that you and your site supervisor determine your work schedule, which gives you some flexibility in building your class schedule!
Internships are generally unpaid but provide useful experience that may give you a competitive edge for graduate school or in your career search.
