Most full-time Biden School master's students complete an internship between their first and second years of study. The Internship Seminar prepares students for their internship search with practical advice on career research, résumé writing, networking skills, and informational interviews. Biden School interns apply the skills and theories learned in the classroom to real-world situations.

Interns hold a variety of positions in nonprofit and government institutions.
View examples of internship duties and responsibilities as well as past internship sites, based on a sampling of master's student placements within the last five years.
The Internship Seminar is designed to help you find your own internship so that when it comes time to find a permanent position, you will know how to update your résumé, search for a job, and interview successfully. As part of the seminar, you will develop a résumé that will be shared online with approximately 250 individuals and organizations. Internship Coordinator Lisa Moreland Allred is available to help guide you through the steps in your internship search.
Pre-service MPA students (those without substantial prior professional experience) must register for the Internship Seminar (UAPP860) that is offered each fall semester.
The MPA program requires students to complete internships. However, students with significant prior professional experience may request a waiver through the Internship Coordinator. (Significant prior experience generally means two years of full-time professional experience.)
M.A. in urban affairs and public policy students find the internship experience valuable and are encouraged to participate. MPP students complete a non-credit internship, ideally during the summer between the 2 years of the program, may use the internship program to help fulfill this requirement. MPH and doctoral students may also take advantage of the opportunity.
Students who wish to complete an internship must register with their program chair and attend a résumé workshop offered by the Internship Coordinator.
The internship program is administered by the Institute for Public Administration. For more information, contact Internship Coordinator Lisa Moreland Allred or visit IPA's Internship Program website.
M.S. students in the disaster science and management program take a 1-credit practicum course, DISA857, in the spring semester of the first year of study. This is followed by a 3-credit or not for credit (depending on program of study – with or without thesis) internship over the summer. For more details, review the M.S. program curriculum.
