Title: Agriculture Internship I
Description: This course is designed to provide hands-on, field-based work experiences in agriculture. Internships provide an opportunity for students to link theory with practice. Internships are also designed to help students network with professionals increasing their opportunities to receive full-time employment after graduation and provide resume worthy experience. Internships can introduce students to multiple professions within the broad field of agriculture, helping them narrow down their specific areas of interest early on in their college experience. Internships are temporary, on-the-job experiences intended to help students identify how their studies in the classroom apply to the workplace. Internships can be paid or volunteer with a business, organization, or government agency and are individually arranged by the student in collaboration with an agriculture faculty member and a supervisor at the workplace.
This course is repeatable for up to 6 credits, with no more than 3 credits per semester. Each credit requires 45 clock hours of internship experience. Internships are typically pass/fail credits. Students desiring a grade will need to negotiate a contract with significant academic work beyond the actual work experience.
