The political science internship provides the opportunity for a structured learning experience in a supportive and collaborative environment. Politics majors may seek out internships independently, but are also encouraged to enroll in Pol 89A: Political Science Internship. This course is designed to combine experiences working in fields such as government, law, media, and interest advocacy with coursework that ties an internship back to the study of politics. This course is usually offered every year. Note that students must be enrolled in Pol 89A or an internship course offered by another department to receive academic credit for their internship.
