Career & Internship Support

Students have an opportunity to gain practical experience through the Metropolitan Studies Internship, which places students in city agencies, private companies and nonprofit and voluntary groups concerned with urban problems. The internships offer an excellent opportunity for juniors and seniors to explore and confirm career choices, develop professional contacts and learn new skills. Internships can be crafted to the interests of the particular student. Recent internship opportunities for majors have included:

  • A local government economic development agency
  • A nonprofit advocacy group
  • The Office of the Public Defender for Baltimore City
  • A nonprofit research organization
