Field Experience with Environmental Fellows

One of the main components of the Environmental Fellows program is the completion of an environmentally-related field experience. Students work with their program advisor to create a field experience that fits their individual curriculum and interests.

The field experience can take many forms: internships, research projects, off-campus study, even civic or creative projects. It may be conducted at an approved off-campus study program, through an academic research internship, or an internship with a corporation, government agency, or NGO. 

For details about field experience requirements, please see the program handbook.
