Internships

The STS Program encourages its majors to pursue public service, research-intensive and professional development internship opportunities. At present, the Program does not run an in-house internship program, nor is an internship experience required for the STS degree. However, our e-newsletter The STS Wire is sent regularly to majors and includes internships as well as other opportunities. In addition, the Program is working with STS alumni to identify new internship opportunities for majors. The Program's peer advisors are the first point of contact for students who would like to identify or evaluate an internship opportunity. STS Majors may receive credit for an internship just once during their career at Stanford, subject to approval by the STS faculty director or associate director and typically for no more than 1 unit of credit. However, you may get academic credit for an internship even if it does not count toward the STS major.

An excellent resource on campus for internship opportunities is the Haas Center for Public Service
