Student Internships

The Agricultural Institute offers an internship program to reinforce classroom learning through off-campus experiences. It is a great opportunity to gain real-world professional experience while still in school.

We have a two-course sequence to help students learn and apply the soft skills necessary in today’s workplace.


  • AGI 191 (Professional Development) This is a 1 credit hour course focuses on specific employability skills for success at work. 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 AGI Internship Program

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