Internship Coursework


The Walker Institute internship program is designed to provide students with practical experiences in the realm of politics, government, and non-profit organizations at the local, state, and national levels. Walker Interns apply what they have learned in their Weber State University classrooms to practical circumstances and acquire the communication and organizational skills necessary for success in the workplace.
