In addition to offering a rigorous curriculum, we believe that it is important for students to gain firsthand experience in politics and public service. Many of our students seek to translate what they have learned in the classroom to "real world" experiences beyond the campus gates, in the form of internships and service-learning activities.
Examples of the opportunities available include:
Educational Programmes Abroad (EPA) in Belgium, Germany, England, and Scotland
Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) Japan Studies and International Studies Abroad (ISA) Japan Center for Michigan Universities (political science professor Dyron Dabney serves as Albion faculty advisor for both programs)
For details and application information, please stop by or contact the Political Science Department or, for the international programs, the College's Center for International Education and Off-Campus Programs.
