Internships

Most of our students are employed full-time and attend school part time. Consequently, only a small minority of students are required to complete an internship to meet the degree requirements; most are able to obtain a waiver of the internship requirement. Requests for waivers to the internship requirement must be made in writing and submitted to the MPA Graduate Coordinator for review and approval. During academic year 2017 – 2018, MPA students held internships at the following agencies:

  • International Rescue Committee
  • City of Martinez Park and Recreation Department
  • Neighborhood Empowerment Network, City & County of San Francisco
  • Project Rebound
  • San Francisco City Supervisor Malia Cohen’s Office
  • U.S. Government Accountability Office
  • Veterans Services, SF State Universit
