Food and Resource Economics Department


Undergrad Internship Program

The Food and Resource Economics Department encourages students to seek high quality internships that are directly related to their academic major and career field. The work experience is conducted under approved business, industrial, institutional or governmental agency supervision. Intern positions are expected to enhance the student’s classroom experience and apply what is learned in the classroom.

Students are required to complete the internship application packet, have their internship supervisor sign it and submit it to Ms. Danielle Shu, at or in person at 1170 McCarty Hall A by the first day of classes for the corresponding Fall, Spring, and Summer term.

NOTE: We DO NOT award retroactive credit. It is also suggested that students on F-1 Visas also work with the UF International Center to ensure all documents are submitted to avoid jeopardizing visa status.
