In the Department of History and Government, we recommend internships in all of our majors and require them in some.  We offer the DC Semester for students in any major, and we have recently finalized a relationship with the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center for students to gain an internship experience while going through their “Analyst Boot Camp” for a semester.  The ATIC facility is short drive from campus and provides a great opportunity for students interested in intelligence, homeland security, law enforcement, international studies, and a variety of other fields.  Even if you do not pursue one of these two programs, we will work with you to find an internship in your field either near campus or near your home for your summer break.
