International Internship Program offered by Career Services
Virtual International Internships
Given the current circumstances with COVID-19, we are now offering a virtual internship experience. A virtual international internship is an opportunity to work internationally for academic credit, and is typically unpaid. Internships are an excellent way to gain real-world work experience, develop contacts in your field and build your resume to market yourself for future career opportunities.
Internship in Global Politics
GPOL 3100 is an option available to students with 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.
