A good internship will provide you with experience (for your resume), personal contacts, and a view of the 'real world'. Many students say that the internship is the most valuable single experience of their college careers.
Each student must complete an internship related to environmental studies. The internship may be taken for academic credit or may be a non-credit internship. Similarly, the internship may or may not be used to satisfy the LEAD requirement of the Hamline Plan.It is the responsibility of each student to locate an internship that reflects their interests in environmental studies. The Twin Cities has a rich array of opportunities in virtually every possible area of interest. The Career Development Center and the Director of Environmental Studies have listings for many possible internships; these listings change on a weekly basis.All internships used to fulfill the Environmental Studies requirement must be registered with the Career Development Center, even if they are non-credit and non-LEAD. You will need an internship advisor to supervise the academic component of your internship. This should be a professor that will understand your internship, and does not necessarily have to be your regular academic advisor.As part of the paperwork for the CDC, you will need to provide information concerning academic objectives, bibliography, and academic work required. The academic objectives will be determined in conjunction with your internship advisor, and should incorporate aspects of the theory and fundamentals of the basic subjects behind your internship. The bibliography can be two citations that refer to either texts/articles that you will use in the internship or texts/articles that provide information concerning your academic objectives.The academic work required for all Environmental Studies internships consists of two papers:
Both papers should include a cover page and be written according to the prevalent standards in your field of interest. One copy of each paper must be deposited with the Director of Environmental Studies. In addition, provide the Environmental Studies director with two photographs showing you at your internship.
