International Programs

There are several international programs that fit with a political science major. Students are strongly encouraged to contact the UWSP International Programs Office to see what is available. Many Political Science majors choose to focus on international politics.

Students may choose to do an international internship too (Here is an example of one student's experience in the international internship program). The International Programs Office supervises internships in London (U.K).

The Model United Nations Club and the Model European Union Club are both housed in the Political Science Department, and it provides valuable opportunities for students to participate in the Model UN and EU simulations in the United States, and even travel to the United Nations in New York City to participate in Model UN competition. Please contact Prof. Mert Kartal for more information.
