Students enrolled in the M.S. degree program in AFE complete a minimum 400-hour internship. Depending on the student and circumstances, an internship may involve participation in the many different activities in which the organization engages or may involve completing a single project under the guidance of a staff member of the sponsoring organization. Students develop a contract detailing their educational objectives before the internship begins and present their experiences to their peers after completion.
AFE internships are a great way for students to apply core concepts, refine qualitative and quantitative skills, develop working relationships with the potential for future employment, or simply explore new aspects of the field. From Switzerland to the Nation's Capitol, Iowa's Corn Belt to Boston's urban-fringe, AFE internships provide an important platform for practical training and professional development.
