Internships are valuable experiences because they expand and reinforce what students learn in the classroom. They allow students to explore careers in selected fields, to compare theories with practical experience and personal observations, and to establish a network of friends and colleagues within an employment/research field.
In recent years, USF students have served internships with the U.S. Attorney's office in Sioux Falls, with legislators in Pierre, SD, with public service agencies in Washington, D.C., and with a Member of Parliament in London, England. Internships are also available with the Sioux Falls City Council, historical museums, historical preservation projects, or other historical/political projects. The History and Political Science faculty will help students find internship opportunities that match their academic programs and interests.Off-Campus Study Programs (International Studies)
