Permanent Internship Opportunities

The organizations listed below have worked with the Political Science Department and will have openings for interns each semester, with limited availability. These organizations have put a lot of thought into their internship programs, and are committed to educating UCF students. Interested students can contact the person listed directly. Once the internship is secured, the student should attend Dr. Jacques’ office hours to register. The Department is in the process of developing more of these types of opportunities for our students.
