While our internships can be arranged through the department, a Washington Semester program through American University
or The Washington Center
, or during a study abroad semester, for all students internships are a highlight of the undergraduate experience. Millikin students also intern as part of the Chicago Center
All Millikin political science students are required to complete at least one 3-credit internship (PO 371) of 120 hours in length prior to graduation, but we encourage all of our students to obtain as much practical experience as possible. Students should complete BOTH of the following forms and contact a faculty member to supervise the internship. Internship opportunities are available on the local, state, national, and international levels.
Individual Study Contract
PO Internship Agreement
Internships allow students to test their classroom skills, apply their political science knowledge, and experience the opportunities available to them. We keep in contact with our alumni, creating a network of Millikin political scientists who will help each other with internships and employment.
