Internship Programs


Internship opportunities for third-year undergraduates and MA students studying in the international program of the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy are available at a variety of government offices, non-governmental organizations, and Lauder School research institutes and programs.

The internships approved by the School are for academic credit (2 credits) and provide students with the opportunity to obtain invaluable practical experience in the public and third sectors. We encourage students to take advantage of the diverse internship options, which in many cases open for them career doors.

Although the internships for credit are geared towards third-year undergraduates and MA students, second-year undergraduate students may apply for the Internship Program and will be placed depending on compatibility and availability of internships.

As per FAFSA rules and regulations, students borrowing FAFSA loans cannot do an internship in a non-approved FAFSA institution during the same academic year.
Only students who do their internship in a FAFSA approved institution might get credits towards their internship as part of their academic curriculum. If you are a FAFSA student and wish to take part in the BA or MA internship program, please contact Joanna Simon-Bigart immediately.
