The school strongly encourages students to obtain an internship in a planning agency, firm, or related organization during their time in the program. Internship experience can be vital when being hired for post-graduation jobs. Typically held during the summer between the first and second years, internships are usually paid staff positions and are eligible for 1-3 semester hours of course credit. Details about requirements for receiving internship credit are available in the student manual

Career assistance is a priority; staff provide career assistance for summer internship searches, in addition to job searches.
