The College’s nationally respected Legislative Internship program was devised especially for students who seek to observe politics and government firsthand. Our students find that when it comes to Political Science, there is no better place to be than in a city, and, even more specifically, within a capital city. Trinity’s location in Hartford is literally minutes from the seats of both state and local government, making a variety of real-world experiences possible. To apply for the Legislative Internship program, please fill in our online application.
Another Trinity internship opportunity of special interest to Political Science majors is CityTerm, which carries two or four course credits for a full semester of work in a Hartford-based nonprofit organization.
The opportunity to study abroad and thus experience different cultural and political milieu is open to all students. In recent years, Trinity Political Science majors have spent a semester, or even a year, at various colleges and universities located in Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Australia.
