Attention Potential Fall CGE Interns:
You can still apply online to be placed on a Fall 2010 Semester Internship in London:
Click here to see a list of past placements.
CGE INTERNSHIPS accomplish two important tasks at once:
1) Earn academic credit toward your major or minor.
Working 3 days per week at a professional company earns you 6 Mason credits.
The other two days you take three courses taught by local British Faculty for a
total of 15 credits for the semester. Weekends are "free:"
* Shakespeare's London (taught by Mason Academic Director Dr. Devon Hodges)
* British Life and Culture (3 credits of either HIST 388 or GOVT 496)
* Survey of Western Art (ARTH 201) or Comparative British Politics (GOVT 444)
2) Gain professional experience. In the past we've placed students with the
British Parliament, Bell Pottinger Group, British Museum, or the Center for
Economic and Business Research, among others. Attached is a list of placements
where our students have interned in the past.
