Political Science Internships in Ireland

Your placement will reflect your interests and goals. So you could find yourself flexing your governance and policy muscles by working with a local government agency, city council, law office, advocacy group, NGO or university. Your work may also stretch to public relations: controlling messaging, preparing fact sheets for press, or managing online communications.

Some interns are drawn to work with groups and organisations on the front line of social issues, like inner city youth centers or domestic violence shelters.

You’ll learn to apply your skills to support an organisation and its strategy, which could mean research, statistical analysis, or editing reports.

You can expect to be challenged, rewarded, and grow both professionally and personally in such a program.
