Internship Credit

ENST 3800 “Environmental Internship” provides students with the opportunity to earn college credit while engaging in a valuable experiential learning opportunity. Students can use internships to explore career possibilities before graduation, acquire major and career-related work experience, apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom, and gain insight from environmental professionals. This course defines an internship as a planned hands-on work experience related to personal, academic, and career goals. By the end of the internship experience, students should be able to relate the content of their coursework to the work done in their internship and vice versa.

Review the instructions and forms below and contact the Director of Environmental Studies with any questions.
