Students in Dairy Science are required to enroll in an internship experience course during their time in the program. A variety of working and learning experiences are available. Students can arrange internships through campus interviews or on their own. A variety of popular internships have been obtained by former students in Dairy Science, but the network continues to grow and new and diverse internships are available every year.
Experiences can include agribusinesses, government agencies, food companies, research opportunities, farms and other field experiences. Students are able to apply internship credits toward the completion of their major requirements.
The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) Career Services' on-line job search database, BuckyNet, can also help Dairy Science students obtain an internship or even a job after graduation.
All incoming students are given a BuckyNet account and receive at least one tutorial during the year. BuckyNet allows students to apply for internships and jobs, post resumes, sign up for on-campus employer interviews and much more.
Please contact CALS Career Services with questions related to internships, full-time jobs or overall career strategy.
