Summer Internship Program

We are excited to announce the launch of our 2014 Summer Internship Program! 

At Berger Partnership we recognize the importance of connecting with students to enhance their academic studies and prepare them for professional practice. We have always enjoyed our participation in mentorship programs, guest lectures, community charrettes and design reviews.

Each year we identify a topic focusing on state-of-the-art landscape architectural practices and then hone the final direction with the intern once selected. This year’s topic is our urban environment and the opportunity for urban play, recreation, and activity. This will include children’s play areas, but will also take a look at the entire population of our urban environment. 

Application Specifications

The internship combines practicum and research. Practicum is designed to provide hands-on project experience in a collaborative team environment and will likely involve researching applicable projects and visiting local examples, preparation of graphics, 3D modeling and design of a range of landscape elements. Research typically involves conducting interviews, visiting applicable projects, generating case studies, and culminates in the production of a document and presentation of findings.

The paid internship program is open to all Landscape Architecture and Urban Design students and will run six to eight weeks, approximately 30-40 hours a week. Please note the program is intended for students enrolled in a degree program who will be returning to school for the following term; applicants who graduate prior to the dates of the internship will not be considered. Interns are expected to present their findings to the office at the conclusion of the internship.

To be considered for Berger Partnership’s 2014 Summer Internship Program, please submit a letter of interest, resume, and representative work samples as a PDF to our office. Please limit your submittal to a maximum of 10 pages. For a PDF of the directions, click here.
