The Political Science Department participates in high quality Public Affairs Internships which enable students to elaborate upon and apply campus-based learning, while exploring potential careers. Full-time, internships are available with New York State government in Albany via the Assembly and the Senate. SUNY Oneonta cosponsors the latter. Washington, D.C. based internships in all branches of the Federal government are available via Oneonta’s participation in SUNY Brockport’s Washington Semester Program.
In addition to professional level governmental experience, interns complete an academic component (seminar, readings, journal, research paper, etc.). Albany-based interns are paid a stipend. Students in all academic majors are encouraged to participate, provided they meet both College and program eligibility requirements. Fifteen credits may be earned through Political Science 397. Additionally, limited opportunities exist for part-time governmental internships in the Oneonta area. Contact Dr. Brett Heindl, Political Science.
