Cultivating Knowledge Beyond Campus

Enterprising students may find success by engaging in horticulture internships. By partnering with the horticulture industry to deliver internship programs, students may find knowledge and opportunity beyond their classroom studies. The Department of Horticultural Science at NC State University offers an internship program designed to reinforce classroom learning through either an on- or off-campus experience. Internships most commonly occur during the summer but may also be completed during the semester.

Note: Students desiring academic credit for their internship, must register for HS 492. If you complete your internship during the summer, register for HS 492 in the Fall.  If you participate in your internships during the regular academic year, register for HS 492 during the semester you are completing your internship.

Internship Resources

Discuss with your academic advisor when you should plan on participating in an internship and to find the perfect internship for you.
