A Horizontal Rule

We in the Department of Political Science and International Relations strongly encourage our majors to serve in an internship during the course of their studies at the University of Delaware. Internships enable students to earn academic credit while augmenting their course work, gaining valuable work experience, making important contacts in a field of interest, exploring potential career paths, and acquiring professional work habits and skills. Students may earn from one to six academic credits for an internship. Students may undertake an internship during fall or spring semester or during winter or summer sessions. In order to gain academic credit for their internships, students must register for POSC 464. Students must be registered before the start of the semester or session during which they will be interning. Retroactive registrations are not permitted. If you are interested, please see Director of Internships Philip Jones, 405 Smith Hall, or email
