Internships for MPA Students

Practical work experience is an important part of our MPA students’ education. We partner with employers who are interested in providing practical work experiences that take place throughout the year, either on a full-time or part-time basis. MPA students participating in experiential learning opportunities can find the forms and other resources they need from the Related Links section on this page.
