Available internships provide students a unique opportunity to explore possible career options and to attain "hands on" experience to supplement their coursework. These degrees prepare students for positions in state and local or national government, health care administration, non-profit management and similar workplaces. Graduates may pursue careers in such areas as urban planning, city management, hospital and clinic administration, fundraising or other positions for non-profit organizations, or international relief agencies.
