Sample Co-op and Internship Placements


Over a thousand positions are made available each year for students in all of the major disciplines on campus. Hundreds of positions are salaried; others offer stipends or other advantages such as housing, and many are volunteer positions with outstanding organizations. While most of our organizations are in Massachusetts, we have identified a significant number of field experience opportunities in New York, Washington DC, and throughout the country.  Students are also welcome to find/create their own opportunities.  UMass Amherst interns have a strong track record of excellence in many fields.
