Welcome to the Legislative Internship Site

Launch your career with an internship in Jefferson City serving a state representative or state senator. Spend the spring trimester at the state capitol gaining experience in the legislative process and a firm understanding of how Missouri is governed.

"I truly believe that this internship can help people in their careers and personal endeavors. It was such an amazing opportunity for me and I wouldn't change it for the world!"

-Hannah Young

"The Missouri Legislative Internship is a great opportunity for all Northwest students. It provides not only an inside look into the state's legislative process, but also puts you in a position to make connections with people in a variety of careers. Students of all majors and interests can benefit from the real-world experience of a legislative internship in Jefferson City."

-Paul Wilson

"Everyone thinks you have to be a Political Science major to do this internship, I am living proof that that isn't true.  Like most people I came into this internship knowing very little about state-wide government or how grassroots politics works; after living it I know more than most journalists writing the news stories about it."

-Doug Porter
