Internships are an integral part of both the undergraduate and graduate degrees at the RTIP. Each year, students complete internships across in the United States and abroad with race tracks, farms, trainers and racing-related organizations.
RTIP internships are designed and created specifically for each student, considering their previous experiences, the skills they desire and their career goals. This provides each student a unique opportunity to put their classroom knowledge to practical use, thereby enhancing their educational experience and making them better prepared to assume a responsible position in the racing industry after graduation.
