Internships give students the opportunity to experiment with different career paths, apply classroom knowledge to real-world situations, and gain hands-on experience in a professional environment. Often, internships help students secure a job after college. The Political Science Department puts great emphasis on assisting students with internships.

HOW TO FIND AN INTERNSHIP

  • Check your email. The Political Science Department sends a weekly email to majors and minors that includes internship listings.
  • Ask your advisor. Your faculty advisor can help you seek out an internship that is in line with your interests and goals. 
  • Browse Lion Jobs, LMU's job and internship listing service.
