Overview of Sustainability Internships & Opportunities
All School of Sustainability students are encouraged to pursue sustainability internships during their academic career.
Internships range in focus from environmental science to business, and are an important complement to a sustainability degree as they allow students to apply classroom theories to real-life situations.
These professional development opportunities can also help students determine whether their desired green career is a good match and to find the best job for their sustainability degree. Students who have completed an internship tend to have a competitive edge when searching for professional positions after graduation.
