The Political Science Department has formed relationships with individuals and organizations that offer internship opportunities to students who are interested in getting practical experience outside of the classroom. Internships give students a chance to apply what they've learned in the classroom, gain knowledge that can't be found in a textbook and make connections that help them find employment following graduation. Students should talk with their adviser about internship opportunities offered by organizations in the area; in Lansing, Michigan's state capitol; and in Washington, D.C.  

Find internships at the Washington Center here and look for internships locally and abroad here.
