The Internship Program provides upper-division students at SUNY Geneseo with an opportunity to gain meaningful field experience with public and private companies and agencies. Qualified students supplement classroom learning with first-hand experience in professional settings that are appropriate for their academic background and career objectives. We expect that the student will gain from the experience, and that the intern will be of assistance to the sponsoring agency.

Admissions Requirements and Procedures

The following minimum requirements establish eligibility for admission to the Internship Program:

  1. Normally Junior or Senior class standing (may include selected sophomores). 2. A cumulative GPA of 2.75 and a 3.0 in major prerequisite courses (exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Department Chair.)
  2. Submission to departmental internship coordinator or other departmental representative of application form, current resume, and latest unofficial transcript. Recommendations may be required, forms will be provided.
  3. An interview with the departmental internship coordinator or other departmental representative may be required.
  4. Students who are accepted into a departmental internship program will need to work with a faculty advisor and the onsite supervisor to develop specific guidelines for the internship. These guidelines must be included on a contract form to be completed before the work begins.
  5. Any student who secures an outside position for which she/he hopes to receive college internship credit must meet the above requirements and must complete all paperwork before the internship begins. Internship credit cannot be arranged after the work is underway.
