Summer Internship

We partner with WTAMU every summer to offer an internship to an exceptional undergraduate or graduate student in the Agriculture Department.  Past interns have been Ag Communication, Ag Education, Equine Business, and Animal Science majors.  Each student is given a project tailored to their course of study and evaluated at the end of the summer for their final letter grade.  If you are interested please contact VCF and your WTAMU adviser for more information.
