Real-World Experience

The Department of Geography offers you a wide variety of opportunities to work with professors outside the classroom, obtain real world experience, and become a more engaged, well-rounded memberĀ of the community. Below are just a few of the ways that you can become involved with work outside of your studies at the University:

  • Internships
    Internships give you the opportunity to contribute to the success of a business or organization while gaining hands-on experience to supplement your education.
  • Community engagement
    Create bridges between the University and the broader Twin Cities community.
  • Undergraduate research
    Many of our students participate in ongoing research projects with University faculty or work with a faculty mentor to develop a unique research project. Also consider applying for a Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
  • National student exchange
    Broaden your academic horizons by studying at another university in the United States or Canada for one or more semesters.
