ESG/GIS Internships

The Internship Program

The Program of Geography's Internship Program is designed to help students gain real-world experience solving the grand challenges we face as a society. Whether it is in Duluth, or across the world, our students dedicate a portion of their time and energy working side-by-side with practitioners. In doing so, our students gain the experiences and skills necessary to make them not just competitive in today's job market, but sought out.  

Our internship program provides students with the tools, resources, and experiences necessary to excel both in the classroom and as a emerging professional.  Other benefits include:

  • Real-world experiential learning opportunities
  • Opportunity to Develop their professional network
  • Build their resume

Students should consult the Program in Geography's Internship Forms as they prepare to pursue an internship:
