Careers and Internships

With a major from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, your future is bright.

Not only will you be prepared when you graduate from CANR, but you will be in a great position to secure a job. Agriculture and natural resource professionals are needed now more than ever. In fact, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that there are two jobs to every graduate of agriculture and related sciences.

An internship boosts your resume, provides you with valuable real world educational experience, and helps you to decide whether or not a career field is for you. In addition, you may earn money or college credit, and you will enrich your college experience.
