Find an Internship

Are you a student seeking an internship focused on coastal or ocean issues?

If yes, we are excited to help you find an opportunity.

Our goal in the Marine Studies Initiative is to work with programs across campus and develop more opportunities for learning outside the classroom, including internships that give students research and career experiences locally, nationally, and internationally. 

Internships are typically short-term work assignments related to your major or career interests. Completing an internship is an excellent way to develop the hands-on skills and professionalism needed for a successful transition into the work place.
