The Towson University Department of Geography and Environmental Planning is dedicated toward provided students with resources of information on potential career and internship opportunities. One of the greatest challenges facing college graduates today is a lack of experience in a competitive job market. Students are encouraged to pursue any opportunity available – whether paid or unpaid – in an attempt to gain that experience and put them ahead of all the other graduating students entering the market place.
