Study Abroad

Washington Center Internship Program

The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars is a non-profit educational institution headquartered in Washington, D.C. It provides undergraduates, graduate students and professionals with internship opportunities located mainly in Washington, D.C. and in selected cities abroad. The internship program consists of a work experience tailored to the student's interest and academic coursework.  University of Saskatchewan students have the option of participating during Term 1, Term 2 or in the summer. Those students who participate in the summer will be registered in 9 credit units of University of Saskatchewan courses and those who participate in Term 1 or Term 2 will be registered in 15 credit units of University of Saskatchewan courses.

Taught Abroad

POLS 298.3 - Introduction to the Politics of the European Union

Travel with a uSask professor and other uSask students while studying the politics of the European Union. These studies will be enhanced through visits to the EU institutions such as the European Parliament, Council of the European Union and others. There will also be visits to memorials and museums.

Style Guides

The Department of Political Studies requires that students use the Chicago Manual of Style. Most reference guide books for the social sciences will cover it.


International Opportunities


University of Saskatchewan International

The Department of Political Studies has been active in establishing exchange programs with both foreign and Canadian universities. At the present time, programs exist linking the University of Saskatchewan with Chernivtsi State University in Ukraine and with the Universities of Marburg, Oldenburg, Greifswald and Rostock in Germany.

The Chernivtsi exchange program allows a group of ten Saskatchewan students to spend six weeks every second year, beginning in 1994, with Ukrainian students at Chernivtsi State University taking intersession courses on the politics of transition in the former Soviet republics. In alternate years, Chernivtsi students spend the intersession in Saskatoon doing courses with Saskatchewan students. Because courses are taught in English, no foreign language requirement exists for participating in this program.

Each of the exchange programs involving the German universities allows two Saskatchewan students to go abroad for a year of studies (and students from each of these universities will spend an academic year at the University of Saskatchewan). Saskatchewan students going to Germany are expected to have sufficient knowledge of German to do university-level courses. Hence, while there are some variations in the level of proficiency required at the German universities, students not proficient in the language who wish to participate in an exchange should plan their academic programs to include courses in German during their first years of undergraduate work.

Credit for courses successfully completed at the institutions participating in the exchange programs is transferable to the University of Saskatchewan.
