Eagleton Undergraduate Associates Learn About
Real-world Politics from Alumni and Practitioners
This fall, Eagleton Undergraduate Associates are taking the Internship Seminar course, which gives students the opportunity to reflect on their internship experiences and learn about possible career paths. Earlier this month, Undergraduate Associates had the opportunity to meet five Rutgers University alumni and learn about their legal careers.

"Eagleton Undergraduate Associates have a unique opportunity to meet in a small group setting with federal and state policymakers, activists, lawyers, lobbyists and a variety of other important players in government and politics. They gain valuable insights into the everyday dynamics at play in a variety of fields, while also advancing their own professional development skills.  Our students are ready to hit the ground running in Trenton or Washington when they graduate," said 
Francine Newsome Pfeiffer, who teaches the course and is the vice president for federal relations at Rutgers University.

The internship course is just one way the Eagleton Undergraduate Associates Program helps students link the study of politics with its day-to-day practice. Eagleton is currently accepting applications for the Eagleton Undergraduate Associates class of 2021. Rutgers juniors from all schools, departments, and campus locations are eligible to apply.
