PPPS 162 - Internship in Public Policy and Public Service

Semester Hours: 1-4 s.h.


Fall, Spring

Individualized course designed to complement student’s specialized study of public policy and public service with supervised practice in the field.  Public Policy and Public Service (PPPS) majors who have been offered an internship (with an official invitation letter from the internship site) may receive credit through this course if approved by the executive dean of the PPPS program. The internship must be training for a position in which a college degree would be necessary for full-time employment and in which a major in Public Policy and Public Service would be considered beneficial

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Written consent by a professor to serve as instructor, and approval by executive dean for public policy and public service programs.  Typically open only to juniors and seniors who are prepared for responsibilities of independent study.  Students must be a PPPS major with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better and a program GPA of 3.0 or better.  May be taken for credit up to 6 semester hours. The number of semester hours depends on the type of work and on the number of hours worked and will be determined by the executive dean.  Generally, students can expect to receive 1 s.h. per 28 hours worked. At the end of the semester, students will write and present a paper on the role of public policy and/or public service in the internship position. Students will be expected to keep a journal on their experience and to meet with the faculty mentor assigned to the course a minimum of three times to review the journal and paper preparations.  Final grades will include both on-site and academic work.  An on-site evaluation of “poor” will result in a final grade no higher than “C”.
