Internships and Careers

All students in the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) are required to complete an internship as part of their degree program, including those studying agricultural communication and community leadership. Students studying agriscience education fulfill this requirement through the student teaching experience, but are encouraged to seek internship opportunities as well.

Internship opportunities can be found in multiple places, including Handshake at The Ohio State University and the ACEL Nutshell, which is a weekly student newsletter emailed to students each Wednesday and available on the ACEL blog.
