Sample Internships

Students of the Food and Nutrition Policy and Programs (FANPP); Agriculture, Food and Environment (AFE); and Nutrition Interventions, Communication, and Behavior Change (NICBC) programs must complete an internship as part of their degree requirements. Students in other programs in the Friedman School are not required to complete an internship, but are strongly encouraged to do so. These opportunities may take the form of internships; they can also be lab rotations, directed studies, or other types of experiential learning. The chart below lists just a few of the many sample employers where Friedman School students work, organized by Career Direction.
