Geography Internship Program

The VIU Geography Department will be offering an optional internship opportunity for Geography Major and Minor students in their 3rd or 4th year.  Internship programs are a way for students to gain work experience in their field of study, through career development and placement.  To participate in this Geography Internship opportunity, you first need to register for a mandatory Geography specific three-credit course taught by CEL faculty in the Spring term. The course code is INTP 300 (S22N71). You can find this course through the VIU Course Timetable.

Upon completion of INTP 300, you will then be eligible to take part in a work experience internship in the summer. These work experience placements, which may involve government, the private sector, the not-for profit sector or others, will be identified through an effort involving the CEL, the Geography department faculty and the student.

Note: Please also confer with VIU Advising to confirm that the credits for the INTP 300 course, and summer internship credits will meet the requirements for your future graduation needs.
