Internships in Geology - Getting Experience

The Department of Geological Sciences is committed to helping students get the most from their opportunities outside the academic environment, such as Internships. Some internship positions are non-paying. However, the on-the-job learning experience from an internship may still yield positive dividends. Generally, students, who have worked as Interns, have gotten jobs sooner and higher pay than students, who have not done internships.

Getting Started

Opportunities can be found all over! As a Geology student you will receive emails from time to time from one or more of our faculty members with Internship opportunities. You can scan the internet for internships. You can ask your fellow students, faculty, friends, and family if they know a company or office that might be looking for interns. As a student, you are in a unique position to approach anyone about doing an internship.
