Political Science majors receive upper division elective credit in your major for internships. You may choose from the internships below or from other nonprofit or government internships provided the experience is substantial and related to your major. If you have found an internship NOT on our website, you must ask your internship supervisor to complete the Internship Description and return it to Susan Warren, the Internship Coordinator for approval. If there is no link to a flyer about an internship, go directly to the organization website or contact the organization by email or phone to inquire about internships.
