The internship positions posted on this page have been submitted to the Environmental Studies program by potential host organizations.
Environmental Studies majors who have submitted an Internship Interest Form may contact potential host organizations on their own to arrange a suitable internship position. They are not limited to these postings, students may research and locate their own internships.
Once the student and host have developed a project, they must complete and sign an Internship Agreement. When the Faculty Sponsor accepts the proposed internship by also signing the form, the student may enroll in ENVS 3930 for 1-3 credit hours.
