Internship Placements

Students in the Department of City & Metropolitan Planning intern in public (50%), private (40%) and non-profit (10%) organizations. Many of the internships are based in the Metropolitan Salt Lake City area, though in the summer months students work in nearby states and beyond. Often times, these internships lead to full-time employment after graduation.

CMP students find internships at all levels of government (federal, state, regional and local). At the local governments level, students work in a wide variety of departments and offices including Planning, Zoning, Community Development, Economic Development, Redevelopment, Sustainability, Community Outreach/Engagement, Mayor and City Council, Transportation, and Community Services. In the private sector, students intern for architecture, engineering, transportation, planning, and real estate development firms. In the nonprofit sector, students intern for organizations with a focus on sustainability, conservation, social justice, affordable housing, community gardening, neighborhood improvement, and active transportation.

Below is a list of internship placements from the last ten years.
