As the home of the European Union and NATO and as the de facto political capital of Europe, Brussels is a prime location for students seeking meaningful international internships in the political, cultural, and social arenas. BYU students participating in the European Government and Society internship program work at the EU or EU-affiliated think tanks, lobbying groups, and charitable organizations. Most interns spend their work hours researching and writing on current affairs and learning how governmental policy is shaped in the EU. On evenings and weekends, interns explore Brussels, participate in the international ward in Brussels, and, time and funds allowing, take advantage of the city’s central location to travel to London, Paris, Amsterdam, and other nearby European cities. Brussels interns consequently emerge with enhanced workplace skills, a heightened appreciation for European culture and current affairs, several credits toward a major or minor, and a résumé line likely to open doors for years to come.
