ENV 299 - Environmental Studies Internship

3 credits (PREREQUISITE: COMPLETION OF ALL REQUIRED COURSES WORK OR PERMISSION OF PROGRAM DIRECTOR)

The internship experience will offer students an opportunity to carry class lectures, readings and research beyond the classroom, enriching their studies with new depth and complexity uniquely provided by first-hand experience. The internship requires 135 hours of work at a facility. The internship may be undertaken during the regular school year or during the summer; however, internship presentations and papers can only be evaluated during fall or spring semesters. At the beginning of the internship, students and the internship advisor will agree to a learning contract that establishes specific goals as well as a schedule for achieving them. Interns will meet collectively during the semester to share their experiences and to present brief reports. (F, Sp, Su)
