McAnulty Academic Program (MAP) Internships
The College offers both graduate and undergraduate 1-3 credit internships at the departmental level that can for the most part fulfill either a department major or a graduate degree requirement.
Finding a MAP Internship
Each department provides a list of internship opportunities from which its qualified and interested majors or graduate students may choose.
Washington, D.C. Internships
The College collaborates with the Washington Internship Institute and American University's Washington Semester Program. To enroll in either program, contact your College academic advisor. Students accepted to these programs register at Duquesne and pay Duquesne University's tuition, as well as room and board fees. Duquesne then transfers the payments to the D.C. entities. Interested applicants should read carefully the following procedures.
