SPS 475 Special Studies in Political Science: Summer and Spring Internships

Summer session or Fall semester, 6 credits; Spring semester, 15 credits. The CUNY Washington Internship, sponsored by CUNY's Rogowsky Internship Program in Government and Public Affairs, is offered in the Summer session and is selective and highly competitive (for applications see the Program advisor in the Department of Political Science). Students spend the month of June and most of the month of July in Washington working full time at their internship sites, primarily in Congressional and other Federal offices. The program includes evening academic activities in Washington, overseen by the Rogowsky staff, as well as a required journal and term paper. The spring Albany Internship is the New York State Assembly Session Internship and includes the internship itself (full days Monday through Friday), as well as other academic components and a course, taught by two professors in residence during the evenings. Students are in Albany from the first week of January through the middle of May.
