Department of Political Science
New! Political Science Department Internship Database
Internships provide students an opportunity to bridge their academic knowledge and skills to practical experience in political science related professions.
Students majoring or minoring in Political Science or International Studies can earn one course credit, at the 200 level, towards their major/minor requirement. Internships can be taken for credit during the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters.
The internship database lists paid and unpaid internships in a variety of areas including state and national legislatures, campaigns, local government administrative offices, law offices, and non-profit organizations.

Students interested in enrolling in an internship for credit towards the major/minor must work with a faculty advisor from the department and complete the Learning Contract, in addition to the Internship Application from the Registrar's Office. The Learning Contract is found on page 18 of the Guide for Students, Faculty and Site Supervisors.
Students completing an internship for credit must fulfill the College's requirement of 126-168 internship hours during the semester and identify an On-site Supervisor. In addition, faculty advisors will require additional written work, such as journaling and a final written assignment in order to receive a passing grade.
Students working in any type of internship should complete our departmental form, which will be used to update our database. We need your help to keep the database current! Once you have secured an internship, complete the form below and return to Maureen Bayraktar, Administrative Assisstant. (link to our dbase form)
Contact Dr. Michele Deegan, Department Chair, or your Major/Minor advisor if you have any questions.
