Internships are not required as part of the DGA program. However, upon prior approval from the DGA Director, students may complete an internship for up to three (3) credits with an approved international organization, NGO, government agency, transnational corporation, media organization, or other institution active in some aspect of Global Affairs. Internships generally entail one (1) or more days of work per week for the duration of a semester. Students interested in internship credits should submit a request in writing to the Director and include a description of their duties including the name of the organization, as well as the name and title of the person to whom they report. It is recommended that students not intern until they have completed nine (9) credits. Students are responsible for fidning their own positions. DGA does not place students, but will assist with the process.
Upon completion of the internship, students will submit a paper on what they learned and a note of completion and evaluation from their supervisor.
