Add an Internship to Your Resume

Learn about the social sciences while gaining hands-on experience in a professional environment.

Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to apply. Sophomores may apply but priority is given to upper level students.  All majors are welcome. Social Science Department majors must fulfill this course (or do a special project) in order to graduate.

Interns work an average of 8 hours per week during the semester in a Houston-based research, advocacy or political office. The internship course counts as 3 hours of upper level political science credit.
