Texas A&M University recognizes internships as an integral part of its curriculum, enabling students to participate in structured, supervised learning experiences off-campus. The Agricultural and Natural Resources Policy (ANRP) Internship Program strives to provide high-impact opportunities which help students build on and enhance previous coursework. Integrating an off-campus, work-learning experience with related curriculum choices reinforces learning on campus.
The ANRP Internship Program helps students from the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences obtain policy-related internships in Washington, D.C.; Austin, Texas; and in Rome, Italy. Students may engage in internships in a variety of settings which match their academic goals.
ANRP interns are expected to work full-time at their internship placement within our program. During their internship, students learn new skills unique to their field, gain valuable inside knowledge about their professional future, and meet the people who will someday become their co-workers and professional network.
As a result of participating in the program, ANRP interns will:
- Gain an understanding of and exposure to the public policy process.
- Develop professionally relevant competencies and relationships, explore career interests, and form networks.
- Evaluate and apply knowledge gained from academic coursework while examining firsthand how theories learned in the classroom impact society and the world.
- Develop intellectual and professional partnerships.
- Expand opportunities for self-directed learning.
- Clarify career goals and personal aspirations.
