Internships can serve many useful purposes for political science students. They may provide direct experience with the material political scientists study, they may lay the foundations for independent research, or they may inform students' career choices. For Political Science students interested in finding internships:
Register your major and your industry interests in MOJO to automatically receive emails about opportunities and events.
Look at the Center for Careers and Internships page on internships, especially the information on finding and funding, as well as Winter Term and summer resources.
Search the much larger LACN internship database in addition to MOJO.
Political science majors have volunteered to speak with you about your internship or job search on MiddNet.
Students can find other sources of funding for unpaid summer experiences at CCI's funding page.
Read about the experiences of students who did internships last summer.
Finally, check out the information on Law and Government and Think Tank opportunities.
For more information about internship and career opportunities related to political science, contact Tim Mosehauer at the Center for Careers and Internships.
