The Georgia Department of Agriculture has hosted dozens of interns in various sections within the Department’s oversight. These students come from several Georgia universities and colleges, studying majors both directly and indirectly related to agriculture. The Department looks forward to expanding and promoting its internship program. Students who are interested in a possible internship opportunity with the Department can learn more from our Internship FAQ.
Internship positions are primarily based out of the Department’s headquarters building in Downtown Atlanta. There may be additional positions at the Tifton Laboratory, which serves as the Department’s South Georgia base of operations. Internships will generally last from 10-16 weeks, with hours depending on the specific requirements of an individual internship. Some travel may be expected during an internship.
Depending on the needs of the Department, internships may be available in several divisions. These divisions include Administration, Agricultural Inputs, Animal Industry, Communications, Finance, Food Safety, Fuel and Measures, Human Resources, Information Technology, Laboratory, Legal Services, Licensing, Marketing, Plant Protection, and Structural Pest.
