UConn Avery Point students working with Professor Hannes Baumann

This manual is a living document and is constantly being updated with new internship opportunities. Many of these internships are appropriate for Maritime Studies, American Studies, and Marine Sciences majors. However, many are also suited to students in other majors. Some can be conducted during the academic year and others are for the summer only.

If none of these opportunities seems like a good fit, try thinking out of the box. Make a mental list of the various organizations and agencies in your own community: libraries, municipal offices, schools, land trusts, local businesses, etc. Think about your skills and strengths and how you might benefit from them. Discuss the idea with your academic advisor and see if it makes sense.
