The Sanford School of Public Policy career services office assists undergraduate public policy majors, as well as Master of International Development Policy (MIDP) Program and Master of Public Policy (MPP) Program students. The office provides one-on-one career counseling, assistance with finding policy internships, and professional development workshops. Detailed information about the office can be found on the website at sanford.duke.edu/career-services/graduate-programs-career-services.
The undergraduate internship program coordinator works with students to obtain policy internships that will satisfy the undergraduate degree requirement. All requirements for the undergraduate internship program can be found in this bulletin and in the student handbook at sanford.duke.edu/academics/undergraduate/current-students.
Students in the MPP and MIDP programs are also required to complete an internship in the summer between their first and second year of study, subject to approval from the career services office. They should work with the career services office staff to find an internship that will satisfy the degree requirements.
In the International Master of Environmental Policy (iMEP) Program, students can have one-on-one career counseling, receive updates on internships, and meet with experienced people who work in related fields.
