Internship/Residency Programs and Forms
I did an USC Price internship at the Government Accountability Office in Washington, D.C., and was able to connect with many D.C. Trojan alumni.

An internship/residency is a three-way exchange among a student, USC, and an organization. Internship/residency requirements vary by degree program.
Internship programs provide invaluable experiences for students to explore career paths and define career aspirations. An internship/residency develops personal, professional, and networking skills necessary for launching a successful career. In addition to opportunities in L.A., many students seek summer internships/residencies in other states and abroad.
All MHA students must participate in a residency program. Follow the link to access information and forms.
