    In the case of the one internship I completed for academic credit, my department was rather hands-off (I found the opportunity myself and to my knowledge the department was never really in touch with the campaign I interned for), but that was more or less what I'd expected going in. All I had to do in order to receive credit was get a letter of reference from my manager and write an 8-page essay about the experience at the end of the semester. The internship itself was a decent experience on a political campaign -- I did a lot of the same work as walk-in volunteers, but there were some opportunities for leadership, and most of the work helped to build relevant skills and expand my network. At the same time, it wasn't nearly as valuable of an experience as the paid internship I later completed (not for credit), where I was given much more responsibility and felt that everyone I worked with was truly invested in my professional development.
