I am the intern coordinator for the Department of Political Science. One of the largest programs we offer is the internship program with the Tennessee State Legislature. We send 16-20 students to Nashville during the spring semester where they are assigned to either a legislator or a committee and they spend the entire semester there learning about the legislative process. Virtually every intern will tell you it is a life changing experience, one of the best of their college careers. This program is good for students of all majors, not just political science. Anyone interested in politics will enjoy this experience!
