The Legislative Internship in Agriculture is designed to provide the intern with a working knowledge of the structure and operational procedures of Oklahoma state government and to observe and evaluate firsthand the opportunities of a career in politics or public service. Particular emphasis is placed on the legislative process and the role of the Oklahoma Senate and House Committees on Agriculture. The intern will work closely with Chairs and staffs of those committees. The intern will also work with the Commissioner and staff of the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture.

The intern will be housed in or near the legislative office of either the Chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee or the Chair of the House Agriculture Committee.
