Internship Spotlight: Intervale Food Hub
"As a Community and International Development major, there’s a lot of paths my major can take me down. This internship helped me to see ways in which the community can support urban agriculture movements and developed my interest in urban planning and urban development." –Sophie Emery '19
Gain experience. The CDAE Internship Program supports students find career-related internship experiences locally, nationally, and internationally. See what is is like to work for a nonprofit organization, startup, corporation, or goverment agency. Our Internship Coordinator is here to help you explore your options, make connections, and navigate the internship process from start to finish.
Earn credit. Internships may be for credit or not, paid or unpaid, part time or full time, and can be completed during the academic year or arranged during the summer. For-credit internships can be counted toward CDAE degree requirements with the approval of an academic advisor.
Apply skillset. Internships allow students to gain relevant, real-world experience that they can apply to a future career. Learn from our alums whose experiences as undergraduate interns led them to where they are today.
