Required Internship

Get real-world experience while still in school—and a head start on your career

As a SPEA student, you are required to complete an internship. (If you are a BSES, or Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science student, you will complete a field experience in lieu of an internship). Our dedicated SPEA Career Development Office (CDO) administers internship approvals for your degree requirement and supports your internship search and application processes.

Internship Registration

You must get approval for your internship before you begin interning, and you must then register your internship.
