From the Classroom to the Real-world

Each semester, CAHNRS facilitates an internship application process to partner students with world-class faculty internship mentors to create a unique hands on learning experience in Pullman or at our Research and Extension and County Extension locations.

CAHNRS Academic Programs, the Agricultural Research Center, and Extension have pooled funding resources to create opportunities for CAHNRS undergraduate students to have an immersion-based teaching, research or extension internship experience. Through this support over 30 paid internship experiences are offered to students each school year. Opportunities unique to CAHNRS have students from all majors utilizing what they learn in the classroom to solve real-world problems in fields related to their major.

The CTLL provides exceptional learning and leadership experiences that build essential success skills in three areas: foundation, integration and translation.

Internships Help Students:

  • Apply knowledge acquired in the classroom to real-world situations.
  • Develop analytical thinking skills and their discipline.
  • Clarify attitudes about careers in their field.
  • Improve time management, communication, and interpersonal skills.
  • Students who have completed internships are more likely to get a job at their internship site or with a competitor than students who have not completed an internship.
