Political Science Minors


Although not required, the department’s internships are open to all its majors. With the state capital, several county seats, and many small towns within an hour drive of the campus, interns continue their studies at Campbell while working for one of many public officials or governmental bodies including city managers, county commissioners, district attorneys, state senators, and more. Many students complete summer internship in places as a law office near their hometown, a state museum or historic site, or in the Washington office of a member of Congress.

For those wishing to spend a semester outside North Carolina, Campbell’s Washington-based American Studies Program offers four months in our nation’s capital. During that period interns take four seminar courses stressing various aspects of domestic and foreign policy and gain first-hand experience of Government by working as an aide to a member of Congress, doing research in a think tank (e.g., Institute for International and Strategic Studies, Heritage Foundation), or serving in one of the agencies of the federal government.
