Georgia Department of Agriculture

Internship Opportunities

Since Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black took office in 2011, the Georgia Department of Agriculture has hosted dozens of interns in various divisions and sections within the Department’s oversight. These students come from several Georgia universities and colleges, studying majors both directly and indirectly relating to agriculture. In the coming semesters, 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 here and submit an application.

Internship positions are primarily based out of the Department’s headquarters building in Downtown Atlanta, with additional positions at the Tifton Laboratory, which serves as the Department’s South Georgia base of operations. Some travel may be expected during an internship, which will last anywhere from 10-16 weeks, with hours depending on the division and specific requirements of an individual internship. Depending on the needs of the Department, multiple internships may be available in each major division: Administration, Animal Industry, Food Safety, Fuel and Measures, Marketing, and Plant Industry.
