Internship Opportunities

Internships are a great way to acquire "hands-on" experience in a field of interest to the student and provide learning experiences that are difficult if not impossible to realize in a classroom setting. Although internships are completely voluntary, all undergraduate students are encouraged to explore conducting an internship at some point in their academic career. Internships are especially recommended for students with Sophomore/Junior status as it allows evaluation of career choices and opportunities prior to graduation. Although most internships are conducted during the summer months, internships can be conducted any time of the year (i.e. during the semester, during holiday breaks, or simply on weekends, etc.). 

Students make all the arrangements for their Internship including finding and contacting a Cooperator. Initial contact with a potential cooperator may be made by the student or at the suggestion of their academic adviser or internship coordinator. Only students with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better and sophomore or higher standing are eligible to earn internship credit. Students are limited to a maximum of 8 credit hours of internship during their academic career. The length, semester(s), and hours of internship credit earned through U.W. can be individualized to the student. To earn credit, students maintain a written journal of experiences gained during the internship, provide brief progress reports on internship activities, give an 8-10 minute presentation, and prepare a 10-page (max) paper describing their internship learning experience.

A list of available internships, as well as a database of past internship experiences is maintained in the ANSC Main Office. Please see Kelli DeCora in the ANSC Main Office or the Internship Coordinator for more information. Internships are posted on the bulletin board outside of Animal Science Room 101.

If you have any questions about the internship program, please contact:
