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 member of the community.
Advising Workshops, University of Minnesota, and Community Events of Interest to our students
Below are just a few of the ways that you can become involved with work outside of your studies at the University:
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.
- Get research funding through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP).
- Find Off-campus research opportunities through the National Science Foundation-Research Experiences for Undergraduates program. These are usually 10-week Summer programs at universities across the United States.
- National student exchange
Broaden your academic horizons by studying at another university in the United States or Canada for one or more semesters.
