Internships are a great way to get experience and figure out where you would like to work in the field. We require students to complete a capstone project. An internship is one way to fulfill this requirement. Students are welcome to experience more than one internship for their own personal gain of knowledge and experience. To receive credit for the Major, students must register for ENVI 305  (Winter Semester) and ENVI 405 (Summer Semester). For those who are applying to an internship before they register for ENVI 305, but will take place after ENVI 305 need to contact Dr. Kovacs for an application. Those registered for ENVI 305 will be sent the application by Dr. Kovacs upon registration. After the application is completed, approval of the internship will be given by Dr. Kovacs.
