The Office of Career & Alumni Programs assists matriculated graduate and undergraduate students in obtaining internships relevant to careers in public administration, public policy, and political science.
Why Intern? Internships have many benefits. Experience in the workplace, exploring your field and making valuable contacts are just a few.
Are There Paid Internships? That depends on the employers and their employment requirements.
How Do I Find an Internship that is Right for Me? The Office of Career & Alumni Programs will help guide you to a position that fulfills both academic and career requirements. Call 518-442-5253 for an appointment, email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the office in Milne Hall.
What forms do I need for my internship? Students are required to fill out a placement form, a student evaluation, and supervisor evaluation. The placement form needs to be completed PRIOR to beginning the internship experience, and both student and supervisor evaluations should be completed at the end of the internship experience. These are available below for download, hard copies should be returned to the career office in Milne 105.
