We have established an efficient internship program by standardizing the process, which is guided by the School of Public Affairs' Student Relations and Experiential Learning Director, Kristy Modrow. Our interns have found opportunities with companies such as IBM, Wells Fargo, Menards, and United Way. Students who opt to not do an internship will improve their research and analytical skills through an individually supervised thesis.
Students are not placed in internships, they must find the agency where they would like to intern. Internships must be approved in advance.
Undergraduate Students may completed an internship for a maximum 16 credits; three credits may be applied to the major's elective credits with others applying as general electives. Graduate Students should work with their faculty advisor to determine internship requirements.
For internship questions, contact Kristy Modrow, Student Relations and Experiential Learning Director.
"Every day at work should present you with an opportunity to learn something new. Your ultimate goal should be to focus on your continuous growth and improvement. Take the extra initiative to set yourself apart from your peers and success will surely follow."
“Take in every experience and opportunity as you can! It will set you apart from your peers if you are going above and beyond what is expected of you, and it is fun!"
