POLS 297 Internship in Public Affairs
Public affairs internship programs enable students to deepen and apply their understanding of politics and policy, develop professional skills, and explore career opportunities. Internships for credit require academic work, which may include seminars, readings, journal entries and a final report or paper, in addition to professional duties at the placement site. Full-time, full-semester internships in New York State government and in Washington, D.C. are available each semester. Part-time local and regional internships are also available. Sites can include local governments, political campaigns, law offices, and non-profit organizations. Students in all academic majors are encouraged to participate, provided they meet both College and program eligibility requirements. Students wishing to fulfill major capstone requirements through internships must also register for 3 credits of POLS 399 Independent Study and write a major research paper under the supervision of the department internship coordinator.
