Political Science Internship

The political science internship program provides students with an opportunity to combine academic training with field experience. The program stresses the interdependence of the University and the community. Students engage in service/learning experiences designed to supplement and enrich their educational programs through active participation in the governmental process. Currently, the Department of Political Science awards credit to student interns in a wide variety of agencies and offices in state and local government. The students usually serve in a research capacity for the assigned agency. Every attempt is made to match students' interests with agency needs. Students attend seminars to discuss the work they are doing and to relate it to academic studies and findings. Depending upon the nature of the internship, students may earn four to twelve credits in Political Science 496 for a departmentally approved internship.
