Students studying in the History & Political Science departments have opportunities for various types of internships while in Chennai. Internship options could be in the form of research papers or independent study along with many of the think tanks and research agencies that are present in Chennai. Students who wish to follow this path must contact the Resident Director to work on potential areas of work and agencies.

Students also have the option of taking up the internship offered through the Social Work department as many of these agencies also deal with policy and implementation challenges across several sectors.
