ESP Internship Program

Students learn best by doing. In addition to student research and field-based courses, students are required to complete an approved internship. The variety of internships reflect the varied interests of our students and career path opportunities, which include environmental consulting firms, policy research, state and federal government, natural resource agencies, private consultants, nongovernmental organizations, and environmental education. We take internships seriously--our syllabus for the course (ESP 400) is 11 pages long!
