POL 599: Policy Studies Internship

Prerequisite: MPP students only or permission of instructor

A policy-related internship tailored to each students' career preferences or academic interests. The selection of an internship venue will occur in consultation with the student's MPP advisor and with the approval of the MPP Internship Coordinator. The Internship venue is usually selected from a pre-approved list of local, state and federal agencies, non-profit organizations and private sector businesses. Note: The field work component of the internship (2 credits) is waived if an individual has at least two years substantial and relevant work experience in a policy making or public management position, although students must still enroll in the academic course component (one credit) of the internship to graduate.
