The Environmental Studies Program is focused upon experiential learning through both internship and fieldwork requirements. Internships, usually experienced in the senior year, involved placements with governmental agencies, non-profits, and local businesses. Although only one three-credit experience is required, many of our majors will participate in multiple internships in order to broaden their experiences and professional contacts. Fieldwork requirements or opportunities include a wide range of courses such as Ecology Labs, Field Ecology, Forest Ecology and others. The department also promotes a series of ecology expeditions to unique environments throughout the country that have included trips to the Florida Everglades, Adirondack Mountains of New York, and Yellowstone National Park.
