Provide Internship Opportunities

Alumni of the political science program can provide a valuable network of diverse internship opportunities for current students. If your organization or business is interested in learning more about hosting an intern or already has available internships, please contact Associate Chair Claire Curtis. In addition, if you know of other internship opportunities and/or are willing to provide an introduction to your contacts, please share these with us as well.

Volunteer as a Guest Speaker

To provide students with greater insight into careers and special topics, the political science department hosts career panel discussions and alumni guest speaker presentations. Topics of past panels have focused on what careers political science majors pursue, graduate school, and Washington D.C. opportunities. If interested in volunteering as a guest speaker, please contact the Department Chair Gibbs Knotts.

Volunteer as a Career Mentor

To help students learn more about career opportunities, our department launched an Alumni Mentorship Program in 2016. If you would be interested in serving as a mentor, please complete the Alumni Mentorship Program Form. Mentor and mentee matches will be made in October. We ask that mentors and mentees connect at least three times during the semester. Any questions can be directed to Department Chair Gibbs Knotts.
