Work experience that complements your classroom preparation

SPEA Public Affairs majors are required to complete an internship. Criminal Justice majors are strongly encouraged to do internships.

Internships allow you to:

  • Apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to real-world situations
  • Gain valuable work experience relevant to your academic program
  • Spot career opportunities
  • Connect with professionals who can mentor you, write letters of recommendation, and help you find jobs.

However, getting an internship starts with you! To start the process, contact:
