Want to intern in the US House or Senate? In the Georgia State Legislature or Augusta Mayor's Office? How about a local law firm or nonprofit?
Internships have been identified as a "high-impact" educational practice by the Association of American Colleges & Universities. Our Internship Program is designed to allow students to receive academic credit (3-9 hours), including credits toward the Leadership Certificate, for real-world work experience.
The internship experience serves as a transition between the world of the classroom
and the world of work. Our interns work in a variety of agencies or organizations.
Successful internships give students an opportunity to relate their academic study
to work situations and to provide real-life information on potential career choices.
For more details, please review the steps to an internship worksheet.
For general information on the Department of Political Science's internship opportunities, contact Dr. Gregg Murray.
We hope you’ll take advantage of the many fantastic opportunities we offer for a successful political science internship!
