Hands-On Learning

A number of exciting internships are available to international studies majors, including many state and local opportunities. Students have the opportunity to work on issues important to them and to develop and cultivate contacts that often turn into full-time jobs. Internships provide employers with an excellent opportunity to assess the attitude, skills, and quality of student interns.

Internships through the Washington Semester Program could be with a member of a non-profit organization, a lobbying firm, a public interest group, or the Washington office of a religious denomination, museum, or theatre.

A variety of other internships are also appropriate for international studies majors. Recent examples include internships at:

  • The National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC)
  • The Norwegian Embassy
  • The Mexican Embassy
  • GREENPEACE
