Students will be enrolled in three academic courses and a six-credit internship course for a total of 15 credits. Students can only opt out of one of the academic courses if they have already taken the course.
The courses for the fall 2017 program will be:
GOVT 480 Internship (6 credits)
On-the-job training in transnational or international fields through approved internship programs. Three credits from the internship can be applied to student’s major or concentration depending on internship placement. This course is offered on a pass/fail basis.
GLOA 495 Global Experiential Learning (6 credits)
On-the-job training in transnational or international fields through approved internship programs. Three credits from the internship can be applied to student’s concentration depending on internship placement.
The courses offered to the Global Politics Fellows are especially applicable to the Global Governance and International Development concentrations within a Global Affairs major; however, students considering other concentrations are also encouraged to apply. Please contact your academic advisor regarding potential course substitutions for your degree requirements.
Some courses may apply to various concentrations (Comparative Politics, International Relations, or Law, Philosophy and Governance) within the Government and International Politics Major. It is possible to complete 9 of the 12 credits for a concentration in one semester!
