Get Your Hands Wet with a Hands-on Internship

Looking for invaluable experience, professional connections and unique learning opportunities? If you are up to the challenge, become a Georgia Aquarium intern today. The goal of the internship program is to support Georgia Aquarium departments and provide pre-professional, experiential learning opportunities for individuals working towards our mission: “Georgia Aquarium is a nonprofit committed to inspiring awareness and preservation of our ocean and aquatic animals worldwide.”

Interns spend their time assisting our Zoological Operations teams and our non-Zoological Operations teams, like our Event Services team, Dive Operations team, and our Animal Training teams! Learn more and view current internship opportunities on our Careers Page.

Georgia Aquarium internships will be extensions of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. These internships will have clearly defined learning objectives and goals relating to the professional goals of the student’s academic coursework. All interns will be supervised by a professional with experience and educational or professional background in the field of the experience and be given routine feedback. 

All Georgia Aquarium internships are experience-based, paid internships.
