Political Science internships
Political science is a broad and inclusive discipline. Students have many avenues to consider, but with guidance from the department's faculty and staff, they can be successful in their pursuit of a degree, as well as any career path after graduation. Internships are a great way to get extra in-the-field experience.
Some political scientists are psychological researchers who want to understand why people behave the way they do politically. Others seek to know the whys and wherefores of judicial processes and constitutional issues. Other political scientists are intellectual historians and social critics who are interested in the quest for the good of society. Some are statistical theorists and specialists in surveying political attitudes. Some investigate the causes of war and the conditions for peace among nations.
All political scientists share a common interest: the public arena of human society, the uses of power and persuasion, and the ideas which shape it. Explore some of the political science internship opportunities available to students to help identify career goals.
