Our goal with the CAFES Internship Program is to create a uniquely beneficial experience for both students and employers with the assistance of faculty coordinators. We listen closely to our students' career aspirations, and work hard to find the perfect fit with local, regional, national and international organizations who are seeking to employ top quality candidates.

Not all CAFES majors require an internship, but they are strongly recommended for all programs. The vast majority of CAFES internships are paid experiences.
