We have a dedicated Career Services team that is available to help you find internship placements and support your employment search post-graduation. In 2022, 100% of students from the MPP Class of 2023 secured paid policy-relevant summer internships.
While studying in the MPP program, you will be required to complete a paid policy internship between your first and second year of study. Under faculty supervision, the internship offers you a chance to apply your knowledge to issues in the public, private or non-profit sectors.
Most importantly, this internship will help you clarify your career direction, gain perspective on classroom learning, and provide invaluable experience and the network-building needed to secure employment after graduation. Internships may relate to any aspect of policy planning, analysis, decision-making and implementation. At the end of your internship, you will submit a written research report providing an original analysis of the policy and/or organizational issues explored during your internship.
The Career Services Team works with you to identify and secure internships and full-time jobs that fit your career goals.
