Political Science students oftentimes have success working with the Hinckley Institute to secure an internship. It is suggested students begin their search with Hinckley.

However, if for any reason the student prefers to search for and gain alternative academic credit, up to six (6) elective credits can be earned via SBS 4890.

Hinkley Institute

SBS 4890 Overview:

Students complete a contract with their internship site supervisor, submit bi-weekly journal entries, complete a final research paper (4-6 pages), and update their resumes. Supervisors must also agree to provide students with a mid- and end-term evaluation which accounts for a combined 40% of the student’s final grade. All coursework is available and graded via Canvas.

You MUST HAVE A PERMISSION CODE to add this course. If you have already secured an internship, request a permission code. If you have not yet secured an internship, please meet with your Internship Coordinator to review your options.
