Internships are work/learning experiences that provide a hands-on way for students to confirm their choice of major and/or career in a way that is more substantial than a part-time job. They may be linked to an academic department and/or done for academic credit. An internship lasts between two-four months, and may be part-time or full-time. Some are paid while others are not.
UConn Center for Career Development offers a great deal of support and information, both in person and on their website, for students interested in getting involved with internships. However, this page provides Geoscience specific opportunities that we have found that may be of interest to you. We encourage internships, especially in the fields of Geoscience, as fieldwork is extremely important in understanding and gaining a greater perspective for the type of work you will do after graduation.
