Internship Opportunities in Landscape Architecture

Landscape Architecture students at Michigan State University have the opportunity to earn academic credit, while participating in an approved internship position. Internships offer students the opportunity to apply skill from their coursework in a professional office setting and in a responsible way. Positions are obtained through student searches, position postings and alumni interaction.

Finding placement is normally the responsibility of the student with assistance from the academic advisor, internship coordinator or LA faculty members. They can offer insight and knowledge for students, and work diligently with campus and local communities to provide networking opportunities.

Students have the opportunity to have their resumes critiqued and their interview skills polished in Career Skills Workshops offered through the Landscape Architecture Program; the School of Planning, Design and Construction; and the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Career Services Office before contacting potential employers.

To qualify for an internship that carries academic credit, a student must be a third year LA major and carry a minimum 3.2 Landscape Architecture GPA.
