Graduate Assistantships/Internships

 

For students looking to break into the field, a Graduate Assistantship or internship is a great path to explore. Although there are different types out there, Graduate Assistantships can generally be thought of as an internship, but the bonus is that you'll also be studying toward an advanced degree while gaining valuable experience in the field. A high number of recreation professionals have taken this path and attaining a masters degree in a related field will make you that much more appealing to a potential employer. See below for schools in Massachusetts that offer GA/Intern positions along with links for more information. To add your school's opportunities to this list, please send an email with a link to your webpage.
