Nuts & Bolts of Internships
Two three-credit internships are required for the Advocacy for Social Justice & Sustainability, Conservation Biology, Environmental Education, Self-Designed Studies, and Sustainable Development and Climate Change concentrations. Students studying these concentrations do their first internship in the summer, after two semesters of coursework, and do their second and final internship during their last semester.
Science Teacher Certification students are required to take one six-credit, full-time, 15-week internship as Student Teachers in a school anywhere in the country.
