Politics affect virtually all aspects of our cultural, economic, religious and social lives, and almost all public decisions are made through collective political activity.

Political Science Internships

St. Norbert College participates in the Washington Semester based at American University, and many political science majors take advantage of this opportunity, which includes internships in politics, justice and environmental policy.

There are also a number of other study/internship options which allow for study in other parts of the United States and abroad. There are numerous opportunities for student internships in state and local governments, administrative agencies and working with office staff of elected officials.
