Internships are a great way to gain experience and explore potential career paths!

ENVI students are required to complete a capstone project which can be completed with an internship or research experience. To receive credit for the ENVI capstone requirements, students must have completed all of the ENVI core courses (including ENVI 305W) and then register for the Capstone Seminar (ENVI 405) and Internship (ENVI 488L6) in any subsequent semester they plan on completing the internship. Previous internship experiences will not count toward ENVI capstone requirements.

Before registering for ENVI 405 and ENVI 488L6 students will need to fill out an “Internship contract”, which is available for download below. Once the contract is approved, students will be given permission to register for ENVI 405 and ENVI 488L6. The decision to approve your contract depends on the following:

  • Completion or expected completion of ENVI 305W
  • Demonstration of application of ENVI academic coursework to the internship
  • Demonstration of the completion of 150 total hours
  • Supervisor and student signature
