The MIA program encourages students to pursue internship possibilities with relevant local or international organizations or government agencies. We will give three credits for approved internships, which may be used in lieu of an elective. You may only pursue an internship after you have completed all of your core courses. The program staff can help you locate approved internship opportunities. However, you are free to pursue your own opportunities so long as they meet the standards expected by the program.

Please contact the staff in advance to ensure that your internship qualifies for course credit.

At the completion of the the internship, students must submit a brief paper outling their responsibilities and discussing the experience they gained.
