The internship program in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture is designed to give students an opportunity to gain practical experience from businesses or agencies in the various areas of the Horticulture industry. The goal is to find a good match between the student and the cooperator so that the practical experience gained complements the academic course of study of the student. Industry cooperators benefit by getting a motivated temporary employee and an opportunity to preview the intern for a possible permanent position. Students benefit by becoming valuable future employees as well as having the opportunity to evaluate their career objectives. The intern experience can also bring more relevance and meaning to the students’ course work.
All students in our Environmental Horticulture major and most in our Horticulture major are required to complete HORT 487 – Internship as a part of their curriculum.
