Every student in Plant Science is required to do a 3-credit internship. Internship experiences can be in various forms and will differ from student-to-student. The internship should focus on what the student sees him/herself doing when the 4-year degree is achieved.
Some types of internships are:
- Research-based – for students who plan to go on to graduate school or bachelor’s students who wish to work in research or labs.
- Traditional 40-hour work week – for students who see themselves joining the green industry after they achieve their 4-year degree.
Emails from the Internship Coordinator and postings on the Plant Science Facebook page are two of the best ways to find out about internship opportunities. Students are also encouraged to seek out and find other opportunities in line with their area of focus or interest.
