Internships offer opportunities to make your education "real" by providing practical work experiences in your field of study or career interest area.
Environmental Studies students are strongly encouraged to pursue summer internships to augment their learning and prepare themselves for future work in the environmental field.
Also, a local internship may be undertaken during the academic year for credit toward the ES major or minor.
