Internships

The 2018 HORT 487 Internship Portfolio will be available beginning Monday, March 19th.  Plan to pick one up in Shepardson 111 on or after that date.

All students in the Environmental Horticulture major and most in the Horticulture major are required to complete a qualified internship and enroll in HORT 487 – Internship for academic credit as a part of their curriculum.

An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths;  give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.

The Colorado State University Internship Guide can be found here.
