Experiential Opportunities

Northeastern students don’t just take class; they take class further, integrating their coursework with real-world experiences.  The Political Science Department strongly encourages both graduate and undergraduate students to seek experiences outside the classroom and to explore the political world around them.  The following are several recent co-ops and internship opportunities for our students.


  • Institute of International Finance
  • IntraLinks
  • Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia
  • United Nations
  • U.S. Customs and Border Protection
