There are a variety of ways to find an internship including volunteering, searching online databases, networking, researching industries, and consulting an internship coordinator or advisor. If you're not sure where to start, schedule an appointment with our Internship Coordinator to receive one-on-one coaching.

Find an Internship

Earn Academic Credit

An academic internship is a structured and supervised professional learning experience related to a student's field of study, within an approved agency, for which a student earns academic credit. CDAE students who are seeking academic credit for an internship experience can enroll in CDAE 296 to earn credit towards their major.

    “Learning through experience is so important.  Although I have learned a lot through my courses at UVM/CDAE, I have been able to put these skills to work through my internships. They have allowed me to try out different fields, discover what I truly love and have taken close to 15 credits worth of internships.  I am so grateful for this experience to basically adopt a co-op into my major.  It has allowed me to have experiences to talk about on job applications and interviews” - Hannah Albert '19
