Office of Policy and Analysis: Internships

Smithsonian Interns

Office of Policy and Analysis (OP&A) internships are available to undergraduate and graduate students. OP&A internships provide experience conducting quantitative and qualitative studies of major Smithsonian policy and administrative activities. In addition, the office conducts studies of Smithsonian visitors and program participants.

Interns work as collaborators with OP&A staff in data collection, analysis, and presentation of results and may also undertake independent projects. A social science-related background (management, business, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, education, etc.) and some coursework in qualitative or quantitative research methods are helpful. Academic credit can be arranged.

How to Apply:
