Practicum Experiences

The purpose of the practicum is to pursue an extended, focused endeavor that is tailored to meet an environmental fellow's individual goals and needs. The practicum enhances a fellow's education by improving their environmental knowledge and skills in a practical or applied manner. The practicum may take the form of an internship, an off-campus study program, supervised research, a civic project, or a creative endeavor. Or it may be something that we have not yet envisioned! Environmental fellows work closely with their advisor, the Environmental Fellows Program Office, and the Hubbard Center to find an opportunity that fits their personal, academic, and professional goals.
