R.I. State Government Internship

The purpose of the Rhode Island State Government Internship program is to enable students to develop a knowledge of state government in order to encourage them to take an active part in the civic life of the state and to further encourage them to enter government service.

Interns for the 4.5 quarter credit hour program are selected upon recommendation from university advisors. Interns are then assigned to particular state agencies according to their preference from a list of available positions, including the General Assembly, the Judiciary and other state departments. Students complete a reflective journal and a topic paper as part of the academic internship assignment.

The government internship can be used to fulfill course credits for the political science, history and Leadership Studies concentrations. A maximum of three classes may be scheduled with the internship unless the student is enrolled in the SHARP program.

Contact Dr. Joseph Delaney of the Humanities Department, fifth floor, John Hazen White Center, for an application.
