GSOG6006 - Internship Program

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Director, GSG


The Internship in Public Administration is a capstone project - it brings together themes developed in the first four core units of study (Policy in Practice: Delivering Public Value; Public Sector Leadership; Strategic Administration and Managing Public Expenditure) and allows students to practise the application of theory to a real life situation, problem or issue. The Internship needs to be based on a 'real world' situation and should add value to the sponsoring agency. All Internship Projects require agreement between the student, the sponsoring agency and the Director, GSG. Depending on the nature of the project approval may also be required from the University's Human Research Ethics Committee.
