Environmental Studies



The Environmental Studies Program considers professional experience gained outside the classroom through internships, volunteer opportunities and jobs in the environmental field to be an integral part of education of future environmental leaders. All majors are required to complete at least one formal internship (ENVN/BIOL/GEOL/GEOG 4800). Students should meet with their advisor early in their career at UNO to ensure that they gain the maximum benefit from their internship experience.


Some advice on finding internships, jobs, and graduate positions (with an emphasis on life sciences) is available here.

Requirements for internships in the Life Science option can be found here.
