Internships

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:
