Academic Opportunities

Internships for Credit

Students who are interested in pursuing environmental careers should consider applying for an internship with the EC! Internships are usually completed for course credit and involve a significant time commitment, around 10-20 hours per week. Internships are project-based and provide students with professional and project management skills through professional mentorship and hands-on work on Environmental Center initiatives. EC staff work with interns and their advisors to tailor the project work and deliverables in order to meet necessary academic requirements. Credit for internships is currently available through the environmental studies program the sociology block program.

All internship positions are currently filled. Be sure to check back for future opportunities!


Action Reseach for the Environmental Center

The most effective change is that which is properly informed. Each year, the EC generates a list of research opportunities which would support our work immensly. The potential projects cover a wide variety of topics and require a broad range of research approaches. Research undertakings are ideally sponsored by a faculty member who incorporates the work into a course. On occasion, the EC will allow individual students or student teams to take on research for thesis work.
