Department Mission Statement

“Advance freedom for the benefit of the American people and the international community by helping to build and sustain a more democratic, secure, and prosperous world composed of well-governed states that respond to the needs of their people, reduce widespread poverty, and act responsibly within the international system.”

Many Northeastern co-op students apply for internships with the U.S. Department of State and are selected to serve in embassies around the world. Diplomat in Residence, Ms. Mary Thompson Jones, is available to help guide Huskies in this process. Her wealth of experience can help you compile a stronger application for an internship or for a career placement in the Foreign Service.
