Students are well aware that to be gainfully employed after graduating from college, they must have a well-rounded education, an excellent grade point average, and experience in their field of study.

Internships provide students the opportunity to build and gain practical experience. While the experience does not guarantee employment after graduation, students will find that their internship experiences will count toward locating employment. Participation in an internship also provides company sponsors opportunities to see how students perform outside of academia and can provide opportunities for them to employ interns after graduation.

Interns will be able to step into a day-to-day work environment and experience life as professionals after obtaining their degrees. Imagine applying what you learn in the classroom toward your internship or vice versa!

SOEST will provide information on available internships on a regular basis. Students are required to apply for the internships and submit necessary requirements. The host employer will make the final selection and placements are not guaranteed.

This internship program is designated for undergraduates in the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology who are majoring in Atmospheric Sciences, Geology, Geology & Geophysics, and Global Environmental Science.
