An academic internship offers the opportunity to gain insight into the profession through hands-on experience and mentorship with the industry's leading minds and firms.
A Required Experience
All bachelor of landscape architecture students are required to complete a 10-week internship with a professional firm or public agency during your fourth year.
For graduate students in the first professional master’s degree program (those students with a bachelor’s in another major), the internship is at least 10 weeks of fulltime employment and is usually completed during the summer between your second and third year.
