Internship Opportunities 

Internships are designed to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to earn academic credit while acquiring the skills and experiences that will assist them in accomplishing their educational and career goals.

Steps and Procedures:

  2. Meet with the internship coordinator to review the internship packet and necessary forms a semester before the anticipated internship, in order to establish eligibility for course credit

Finding Internships

Students may find internship opportunities through ASU, opportunities shared with them via email by the internship coordinator, or on their own. The following are possible resources and examples of where students have interned in the past:

  • ASU Career Services: search for internships based on location, interest, etc. 
  • ASU Elevate: Get involved and explore a range of real-world experiences found in field work, internships, and clubs. As a comprehensive resource, Elevate connects you with personalized experience-based learning opportunities that enrich your educational journey and define your career.
  • ASU School of Politics and Global Studies - Arizona Legislative & Government Internship: The Arizona Legislative and Government Internship Program is a competitive university-wide program that provides an opportunity to intern full-time at a state agency, the Arizona State Legislature, the Governor's Office, or the Arizona Supreme Court during spring semester.
  • (Non-ASU) Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Summer Congressional Interns: intern in Washington DC in the summer
  • (Non-ASU) Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) Fall Congressional Interns: intern in Washington DC in the fall and earn 12 credit hours
  • (Non-ASU) opportunities in local non-profit organizations
    • Some non-profit organizations may not have an internship posting through ASU channels or have a formal application process. Students may reach out to the non-profit they are interested in, for a potential opportunity, then work with the internship coordinator to establish eligibility for course credit.
    • The internship coordinator on occasion, shares opportunities that are available through alumni networks and community contacts.
