SUNY Oneonta

Governmental and Public Affairs Internship Programs

Public affairs internship programs enable students to deepen their understanding and apply course materials, develop professional skills, and explore career opportunities. Students can pursue internships with various public, private, non-profit organizations, and receive college credits, through programs already structured or by finding their own and working with the Political Science Department. Internships may be undertaken during fall, spring, or summer.

Internships for credit require an academic component, which may include seminars, readings, journal entries and a final report or paper. Students may earn 1 to 15 credits and can include a major research paper that would fulfill the capstone course requirement for the Political Science major. Credit cannot be given retroactively, so visit the program coordinator 6-8 weeks before the beginning of the internship semester.

The structured programs, administered by SUNY Brockport, are based in Albany and Washington D.C. They are supervised, full-time, full-semester, professional-level placements in the legislative and executive branches of New York State government, federal executive agencies, Congress, interest groups, or federal courts. The Albany programs include a stipend. These programs are affordable and open to all majors who meet college and program requirements. Local internships are also available. Current eligibility requirements are:

  1. Completion of 57 s.h., including a minimum of 12 s.h. at Oneonta.
  2. Passing grade on the College Writing Exam.
  3. A cumulative GPA of approximately 2.75.
