Every spring semester the Political Science Department offers opportunities to earn academic credit for internships with state legislators, judges, attorneys, and many other types of actors in politics, public policy, public administration, and law. It also offers some internship placement assistance and internship-related scholarships to qualified students. Students interested in an internship with Maryland’s state legislature or in obtaining assistance from the department with placement into a different type of internship must apply by October 24, 2019. Meanwhile, students who obtain their own internships may add one of the department’s two spring internship classes, POLI 438 or POLI 448, at any time during the registration period after obtaining the permission of the instructor. Please visit poli.umbc.edu/internships for more information.
