Beyond the classroom, there are many opportunities for learning through guest lectures, research projects with faculty, participation in political events and elections, field trips, and internships in local law firms, state governments, and in Washington, D.C. Study abroad is strongly encouraged, programs are offered in academic institutions around the world. We have graduates in exciting career-track jobs across the country, and around the world, and network our current, and graduating students with them frequently.
The Department of Politics encourages its majors to take internships. An internship can serve as a valuable test for you in making well-informed choices about your future goals. Students have interned across the state with campaigns and multiple agencies, in the Governor's Office in Concord, with federal agencies in Boston and Washington, D.C. and abroad. If you are interested in an internship, please contact Prof. Jennifer Lucas.
