Republic of Panama Internship Program
Panama: Panama City
The Florida State University has been a strong and important presence in Panama City
for over 50 years. Florida State Panama is, in fact, our oldest international program.
With such deep roots in a multinational crossroads city, we have excellent working
relationships with Panamanian agencies and enterprises. Internship opportunities are
especially interesting because both the region’s natural and business settings are so
distinctive. The Republic of Panama is a center of world trade and the meeting place of
two oceans. It is an unparalleled place in which to learn about and enter into Latin
America’s crucial world role
Note: Internship applicants must have an advanced level of proficiency in
both Spanish comprehension and conversation. Total immersion in the language and culture
is part of the internship.
Fall and spring students will be required to obtain a student visa. Details are supplied after
acceptance and on the Immigration Information page of our website.
