Eagleton Undergraduate Associates explore the practice and processes of American politics. Associates learn about real-world politics and government from experienced practitioners. This certificate program is open to junior undergraduate students in any Rutgers school, discipline and campus. Students apply the fall of their junior year. Those selected for the program will take a series of three courses at the Eagleton Institute during the second semester of their junior year and each semester of their senior year, as well as serve in an internship related to government or politics. The program is a cooperative educational endeavor between the Eagleton Institute of Politics and the Department of Political Science.
