Putting your education into action

The Environmental Program believes in experiential learning. Internships are a fantastic way to apply the knowledge from your coursework. Put theory into practice, develop professional skills, and expand your professional network through an internship for academic credit. 

  • The Process

    1. Consult with advisors regarding internship opportunities
    2. Connect with organizations, apply for internships, secure a position
    3. Choose a faculty mentor to work with - you two will agree on deliverables appropriate for your specific internship
    4. Submit the ENVS 191/291 proposal form
    5. Register for ENVS 191/291 credit
    6. Complete the internship and submit deliverables to your faculty mentor
    7. Send evaluation forms to internship supervisor and faculty mentor

The amount of credit earned for an internship is based on the number of hours of work for a given internship. 


45 hours = 1 credit

  • Establish a total hours estimate with the sponsoring organization before you start.
  • Document your time and the work that you do.
