Monash University’s Politics Department, in conjunction with the Parliamentary Library of the Parliament of Victoria, the University of Melbourne and Victoria University offers students the opportunity to undertake a parliamentary internship with academic credit towards their degree.
The semester-length, 12 point subject provides students with the unique experience of working under the joint supervision of a member of the Politics department and a member of the Victorian Parliament. They will be required to attend induction and research seminars, to keep a journal, write a reflective essay, and submit a major research report on a public policy issue which, after assessment, will be housed in the State Parliamentary Library.
The subject is specifically designed (1) to acquaint students with the structures and processes of contemporary state government; (2) to acquaint them with the nature of public policy research and reporting.
APPLICATIONS – Unit not running in semester 2, 2013
The subject is restricted to students who are majoring in Politics and preferably in the third year of study for their degree. Places are strictly limited and selection will be based primarily on academic merit.
