Political science students who participate in internships may earn up to six hours of academic credit for their efforts. With the help of Dr. Pam Mason, our Internships Program Director, students can receive help in finding internships even if not for academic credit.

Our students have interned in various fields, from law firms to political campaigns. Below are some examples of what our students have pursued in the past.
