Offering internships is a top priority for the department of geography and anthropology. Faculty and staff push their students to gain valuable career experience. They also build strong relationships with businesses to give you consistently excellent internship openings. The result is highly educational positions for students who make a significant positive impact on the business they intern with. You could work for an organization like the Environmental Protection Agency or earn an internship in rapidly growing fields such as geographic information systems (GIS) or remote sensing. Come earn a geography degree and get a head start on your career with one-of-a-kind internships.
Good question! We have some simple steps for you to follow. Who knows? With help from faculty and advisors, some hard work and bravery you could land the perfect internship in the field of geography or anthropology. Below are some general steps for finding and applying for an internship.
