INTERNSHIP FOR GRADUATE CREDIT

Internships (EVPP 894) may be taken for credit for students admitted to our degree programs. Work must be Environmental Science and Policy related work. Supervisors must have a terminal degree or the student must be supervised by someone with a PhD. Students must complete an Internship Contract and submit it to the Graduate Office to be considered for an internship and give it to the host supervisor for signature. Once the host supervisor has agreed to the internship, the student should give the “Supervision of Internships” handout to the host supervisor. After careful review by the Graduate Programs Director, the student will be registered for EVPP 894 by the Graduate Office. When the student has completed the internship and the written material has been graded by the host supervisor, the host supervisor must email the Graduate Programs Director with a grade.
