Internships are short-term and/or part-time experiences through which students have the opportunity to earn academic credit.  

Typically, international affairs students find part-time internships for the fall or spring semesters to serve as their fourth academic course, or they will find a part-time or full-time internship during the summer. In order to receive academic credit, students complete written assignments related to the experience and submit them to a Northeastern faculty member.

Students interested in completing an internship for academic credit through the International Affairs Program should contact Professor Ioannis Livanis ( at least one month prior to the beginning of the internship.
