Course Outcomes

Political Process, Theory, and Thought

"Possess a factual and theoretical knowledge of ... political processes." We may discuss less theory than is typical for an upper-division political science course, but your factual knowledge will go through the roof.

Participation in Political Processes

"Participate effectively in political processes." You will learn how constituents and lobbyists interact with elected officials to craft policy.

Effective and Professional Writing

"Effective and professional writing." You will practice several forms of professional writing in this preparation course, including memos, reports, constituent emails, and so on.

Community Service

"Want to serve the communities ... to which [you] belong." Few experiences at BYU provide you with a richer opportunity to serve your fellow citizens than this internship.
