Internships

Gain valuable work experience, apply your classroom knowledge to real-world situations, build your professional network and earn college credit (and maybe even a paycheck). That’s the value of an internship. The School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning encourages students to seek out and participate in internships.

Finding an internship requires preparation and commitment, so if you'd like to do an internship, plan to begin your search about two to four months before you hope to be an intern. Many students arrange internships independently by contacting organizations where they have an interest in interning. You can also get started by reviewing the list of current geography, GIS, and urban planning internships below. Also read more about finding an internship and earning credit for an internship.

If you’re not ready for an internship but you would like to gain experience and build up your resume, then consider utilizing volunteering as work experience.

Do you want to earn academic credit for an internship? Read the Internship Credit Application page for more information. Experimental learning opportunities that are shared on this website and/or in SGSUP affliated newsletters are not automatically approved for enrollment into the SGSUP internship course due to the internship course has its own enrollment requirements and deadlines.
