Internships

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 semester. Note that students must be enrolled in POL 89A or an internship course offered by another department to receive academic credit for their internship. For questions, please contact Professor Jill Greenlee at greenlee@brandeis.edu.

Important Funding Opportunities
The Politics Department is thrilled to announce a Summer Internship Grant of $4,000 that will be given to one student. This grant enables students to pursue an otherwise unpaid summer internship in an organization or project that is operating in the political, policy, or governmental sphere. Grants are awarded to undergraduate students in the spring of each year. If you wish to be considered for this grant, please complete this application form (pdf) and return it to Rosanne Colocouris (colocour@brandeis.edu) by April 1, 2022.

The John Quincy Adams Society
Below are two offerings from the JQAS:
1. The Morgenthau Grand Strategy Seminar gives participants the opportunity to dive into the big questions that shape U.S. foreign policy today. Over two and half days, students will learn about topics like alliances, order, power, weapons of mass destruction, and more in a program we cosponsor with the Notre Dame International Security Center (NDISC).

Our goal is to leave participants better prepared to navigate  the complex and unpredictable global security environment - one in which the ability to set sound big-picture strategy and align policy actions to it will be critical.

The instructors are rising scholars who are participating in a fellowship with NDISC and who will be supervised in their instruction by a Notre Dame faculty member. Classes are kept small to ensure a participatory format. The seminar will also feature a dinner discussion with Stephen M. Walt. Please note that there are only a few seats remaining in this program.
2. The Foreign Policy Leadership Development Program prepares students intellectually and professionally to take the next step on the road to a foreign policy career. Participants will hear from scholars and policy experts on hot topics like the war in Ukraine or the defensibility of Taiwan.
They'll learn about career paths and skills that can help them land a role in the competitive world of U.S. foreign policy. They'll learn how to be an impactful leader on campus.
For students who are not already involved in the Society, this is an excellent introduction to the nation's leading organization working to advance those who seek greater restraint in U.S. foreign policy.
_______________
  • Both of these programs have no cost to participants, and we are able to cover travel and hotel in Washington. Students can apply for both programs using the same form, and the programs run consecutively, so some students do both.
  • We will accept applications until June 5 but select on a rolling basis, so interested students should apply as soon as possible.
