Each student will complete a policy-relevant internship before graduation. Our students participate in a wide variety of internship experiences, from consulting to nonprofits to law and legislative internships. These internships are excellent job experience and networking opportunities. Internships require a faculty sponsor and must be approved in advance by the academic advisor, Leslie Ross.
Many students participate in more than one internship during their four years. A very wide range of internships are available to BSPP students, with government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, and in the private sector. Many are part-time and paid; some are full-time for a semester or summer; others are unpaid but can be taken for course credit under the guidance of a faculty member.
