One of the keys to a successful undergraduate education is an internship. Internships enable out students to obtain "real world, hands on" experiences. Lycoming is fortunate to be located in a city which serves as the county seat for Lycoming County. There are various local, state, and federal government offices located within easy walking distance of the campus. Students may choose to intern in Williamsport or in some of the other major metropolitan areas located nearby. In the past, students have served as interns with elected state and federal representatives, the Public Defender's Office, the Lycoming County Court Administrator, Williamsport city government, and many local law firms.
"Lycoming's Political Science department provides students with the hands-on experience they need to excel in politics, the law, or a number of career fields. Not only do they challenge you to learn and look at issues from a variety of perspectives, but they also work with their students to find internships and opportunities that encourage personal growth."
