Internships in Geography/GIS

Internships are a prominent part of the Department of Geography and Mapping Sciences curriculum. Through internships students are provided with a chance to extend their classroom based experiences in the field working with professionals. Many of the internships center around the use of the students GIS and cartographic skills, but others have worked with planning and conservation agencies, doing field work, research, analyses, and report writing. Students develop internships in consultation with a faculty advisor and a sponsoring business or agency.
