MPA Internships

The Career Services Office oversees the internship program for MPA students. Career Services staff members identify and encourage public, private and nonprofit organizations to hire MPA students as interns. While pre-service students are required to complete a 300 hour internship, in-service students who are not working are encouraged to do internships. The Career Services Office provides advisement to students on internships, posts them in Symplicity, and helps students secure internships in fields where we may not have any at a particular moment.

Listed below are internships MPA students have held over the past two years.
