Legislative Internship

Program Type
Political Science
Spring Semester/Quarter
9 internship + 3 credit class = 12
Host or Home
Key Points: This is an excellent opportunity for students to view politics up close and personal. You will be living downtown away from campus that spring semester and your days will be full. 1. The Legislative Internship Program is an academic program, not work-study. It is demanding & not simply a way to gain credits through a practical experience. Only students who are very serious about their academic studies are chosen & major emphasis is placed upon participation & performance in the seminar. 2. This is a full-time internship requiring students to work in their Legislative office each weekday. Interns cannot have a part-time job during the day Monday -Friday.

Additional Information

Requirements: Students must be at least a junior or with 60 credits, & completed three or more credits of government or political science. Top applicants are interviewed by a committee, who gives preference to those with good academic records & good written & oral communication skills. Application process occurs in the fall, with the process completed by November 1.

Costs: National Student Exchange participants are encouraged to complete an academic year exchange, registering in the fall for semester academic courses then participating in the spring in the Legislative Internship Program. A stipend is offered to interns.

Access Types:
  • Direct: student may apply and go directly to the program site from the home campus if approved
