Important Information on the Environmental Science Field Experience

Field Experience in the Environmental Sciences

The field experience may be fulfilled by taking a preapproved course (see listing below), enrolling in a Directed Research independent study course with a faculty advisor, or by completing an internship. Please note that a Directed Research course or internship must be approved by the Director of Environmental Science and Environmental Studies in order to count as a field experience. An environmental science field experience course, directed research, or internship necessarily involves data collection, data analysis, and scientific writing.
