Internships are strongly recommended for those students who seek to test new career paths, gain skills, and forge connections with practitioners in the field. Employers seek out our students because of their maturity, technical skills, and cutting-edge theoretical knowledge. Students secure their own internships and use SU campus resources such as the IPS weekly Enews or the Redhawk Network to view lists of available internships.
Counting internships toward MPA credits is optional. Depending on the internship, you may count up to six credits (1-6).
An internship must last at least throughout the 10-week quarter and may continue up to two years.
Please ask the IPS staff for the agreement and risk forms. Once the appropriate paperwork is complete, submit to the IPS office for further processing.
