To prepare Environmental Studies students for life after university, we work with each student to engage in at least one hands-on internship experience to help you develop skills related to your chosen career. You will work with your academic advisor to identify a paid internship in Lincoln, somewhere else in the U.S., or even somewhere else in the world!

Our students have completed internships with private companies, government agencies and non-profits. You will have the freedom to find your passion in any area that you choose. We want you to use this time to actively explore and learn while building skills and having amazing experiences.
