Agricultural Science Internships

Learning at Truman extends beyond the traditional classroom, and students are strongly encouraged to pursue internships as an extension of your in-class learning experiences.  Internships allow you to use classroom theory in the practical realm of the workplace, learn about current practices in agriculture; improve your interpersonal skills, and much more.

Truman’s Agricultural Science Department allows students not only to have plenty of one-on-one attention with professors, but also with other Agricultural Science majors. All of us majors are like a family and are willing to help each other out, whether that might be tutoring for a class or assistance in finding a summer internship.
