Opportunities for All Students
A Hinckley internship is a unique academic opportunity that allows students of all majors to step out of the classroom and gain real-world experience. The Hinckley Institute of Politics places more than 300 students every year in local, state, national, and global internships. Not a political science major? Not a problem.

We also offer graduate-level internships. The S. J. Quinney College of Law as well as the University of Utah’s Master of Public Policy (MPP), Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of International Affairs & Global Enterprise (MIAGE), and Master of Political Science (MPS) programs have already partnered with the Hinckley Institute of Politics and we are expanding each year.

In order to complete a Hinckley internship, you must be a registered student at the University of Utah with a minimum 3.0 GPA. Students who graduate from the University of Utah are also eligible to complete a Hinckley internship during the semester following graduation (or in the fall if they graduated in the spring), but they are still required to register for academic credit for their internship.
