Internship in Global Politics

GPOL 3100 is an option available to students with third-year standing in the BA Global Politics, or third-year standing in the Global Politics Specialization of the Bachelor of Global and International Studies degree. It  offers 2.5 credits to students who complete a full-time, 12 week internship with a host organization engaged in some aspect of Global Politics. The internship involves a combination of practical work with a host organization, weekly written reflections, and a research project on a topic related to the internship, leading to a 6000-7000 word essay.

Normally scheduled in the Winter Term of the student’s third year, internships may be undertaken in Canada or overseas with a host organization engaged in some aspect of Global Politics.

While every effort will be make to support students in securing an internship, COVID-19 will likely constrain the range of options available to students in the coming year.
