An internship offers a tremendous experience and on-the-job learning outside of the traditional classroom environment. The CU Political Science Department encourages and assists students in creating a customized internship to support their individual academic and professional goals. Aside from providing valuable work experience, there are numerous ways in which you can benefit from an internship:
- Spend the academic year, semester or summer away from campus while living and working overeas, in a metropolitan city, or rural America.
- Participate in paid or unpaid internships that can range from conducting tours on Capitol Hill, to working in the KY Legislature or researching political issues for a think-tank.
- Earn academic credit(s) while gaining an invaluable experience outside of the classroom.
- Excellent networking opportunities that could potentially land a full-time job offer upon completion of your internship.
Campbellsville students have participated in some exciting internships that have included places such as the Institute for World Politics in Washington, DC, the United States Congress, the Legislative Research Commission in Frankfort, KY, as well as the Louisville City Council. The Political Science Department is committed to helping you reach your goal by securing an internship that is custom designed to help you achieve success.
