How do I find a public affairs internship? 

Public Affairs students intern at a variety of public and nonprofit agencies (please see student internships below). Students receive internship opportunities from their advisor and through the public affairs LinkedIn group. Students are encouraged to identify an organization they want to explore as a possible place of employment. Job and internship postings can also be found on the Career Services Redhawk Network at www.seattleu.edu/careerservices/default.aspx.
