Student Internships

The Agricultural Institute offers an internship program specifically designed to reinforce classroom learning through an off-campus experience. We have a two-course sequence that will help students learn and apply the soft skills necessary in today’s workplace.

  • AGI 191 (Professional Development) — This is a one (1) credit hour course that focuses on specific, research-based employability skills necessary in today’s workforce. This course meets once a week the semester before the internship starts.
  • AGI 192 (External Learning Experience) — During the internship, students gain practical, hands-on experience working closely with a mentor who also serves as an industry partner.

Requirements for the Internship Program

  • One (1) year of coursework (approximately 30 hours)
  • AGI 191 — Professional Development (must pass with a B– or better)
  • Application and interview with prospective employer
  • Maintain good academic standing
  • Establish a mentor or professional relationship with an employer

This is a great opportunity for you to gain experience while you are still in school and can help you in your future endeavors. Learn more about what the internship entails by reading the Student Internship Guidebook.
