Internship

All students in the Master of Education in Education Policy (MEP) program will complete a two-quarter, 150-hour internship with an independent organization. This on-site internship allows you to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom out in the field, gaining valuable experience and making professional connections that can help advance your career.

Placement Process

Our small class cohort size allows for a personalized internship placement designed to match your skills and career objectives. We work closely with our students and partner organizations to find the best fit.

As part of the placement process, you will meet with program staff to discuss your professional goals and areas of interest. Each student applies for several internships of their choice, and we make the final match in consultation with the partner organization.

Internship Sites

The MEP program provides internship opportunities with an array of organizations — nonprofits, advocacy groups, government agencies and other sectors of the profession. We have on-going relationships with some of the region’s most influential education policy organizations, and new sites are added every year.

Some of our internship partners include:
