Political Science Internship Information

How much credit can I receive? It depends on the type of internship, hours of work per week, and other internship requirements. Generally speaking, we offer one credit hour for every 3.3 hours in the field, with additional assignments given by your intern supervisor (e.g., reading, book reports, daily journal). Up to twelve hours of political science internship credit can be applied to your degree, but only four can be applied to the political science major. The following is a intern-credit reference guide.
