The Department of Geography maintains an extensive network of internship opportunities to help prepare you for life after graduation. As an intern, you can gain practical experience while applying your skills outside of the classroom. You can also earn senior-level college credit, and likely earn a competitive wage.
Many internships turn into full-time jobs after graduating with a degree in geography.


How to Sign Up

  1. Look for internship opportunities the department sends to students through Wildcat, or seek out an internship on your own.
