Internship

Professional internships are a critical component of our master’s programs because they allow you to delve into real-world experiences. During the program two, 3 credit internships are required. The internships are spaced throughout the course of study to enable you to practice skill-sets learned during classes at sites throughout the country and world. To list a few examples: students have interned at community gardens to make fresh and nutritious food accessible to lower income families; they have interned with conservation groups and organizations to protect our natural resources for everyone; they have interned with governmental organizations to support environmental justice legislation; and they have interned with organizations that are active participants in climate change preparedness.

In the doctoral program, students complete a service practicum as part of their Fellowship. For this, students at an advanced level of training reaffirm how their academic experience fits into the non- academic world and strengthens community, placing their scholarship in a renewed context.
