Students of the FPAN, AFE and Nutrition Communication programs must complete an internship as part of their degree requirements. The internship has several purposes: to give students practical field experience that complements academic study, to give students experience in an institution where they might work in the future, to allow students to determine the kinds of jobs they wish to find after graduation, and to give them an opportunity to make contacts in the professional sphere where they will seek employment. Take a look at a sampling of our internships from 2006-2012.
