internship opportunities​​

Students receive hands-on experience out at the Dr. C. Richard Beckett Animal Science Building starting in their very first year, but they are also encouraged to participate in an internship/co-op to acquire additional hands on work experience within the animal science industry.  Internships can be set-up for either academic credit or for the work experience alone.  Students should contact the Office of Internships and Placement for additional information.
