In the interest of ensuring that our students obtain the practical skills necessary for intellectual and professional success, an Internship Experience is a key part of the Environmental Studies major.
In consultation with their major advisor, students identify internships that align with their emphasis and particular interests. Following completion of the internship, students enroll in EVST 49800, a one credit course that promotes reflection about the experience and how it connects with a student's education, major, and personal and professional goals. Students communicate all of this via a formal poster session, as well as engage in professional development exercises. Altogether, our majors participate in an exceptionally wide variety of internship experiences at numerous locations across the region and nation.
