Internships & Careers


Most Liberal Studies students take part in an internship in the Washington, DC area, but students can apply for openings across the country or abroad. Liberal Studies majors have completed coveted internships, including jobs on Capitol Hill, in political campaigns, and for UNICEF overseas. For individuals with significant work history, the internship requirement is often fulfilled by the development and assessment of a portfolio.

Depending on the chosen Liberal Studies option, a student could be prepared for a job in
  • Communications
  • Government
  • Non-profits
  • Management, sales, or marketing
  • Social and behavioral sciences
  • Teaching and education administration


This major can also be excellent preparation for law school or other graduate study.
