For more information about internship opportunites, contact your faculty advisor. In addition to political science internships, there is also the Georgia Legislative Internship under the direction of Dr. Richard Engstrom. These internships are open to all junior and senior college students of all majors. Selected interns work full time for a committee of the Georgia General Assembly when it is in session during the Spring semester. Interested students should complete an application and return it at the Political Science Department. Students interested in Law interships should contact Dr. Howard, Dr. Graves, or Dr. Steigerwalt.
Availability of internships varies but some examples of the types of internships are electoral (political campaigning, polling, etc.), legislative (working for Senate or House committees, lobbying, working for a legislator), executive (Governor's program, various agencies), international (Carter Center, other international organizations) and miscellaneous governmental agencies.
