Research with Faculty
Talk with any of the Environmental Studies faculty members about opportunities to work with them on research projects and develop your own independent research projects. To start, contact our director of undergraduate studies Dr. Victoria Campbell-Arvai.
In addition to the summer opportunities offered by the ENST Program, ENST also offers internship opportunities for course credit through our ENST-492: Directed Environmental Policy and Science Internship course that is offered every Fall and Spring semester. Other internships are available with many organizations and government agencies.
