MES students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship after their first year in core classes in conjunction with their thesis, especially if they do not have prior professional-level experience in environmental work. An internship is a learning experience designed to aid students in achieving specific academic and professional objectives. Please see the MES internship page for more details.
Internships can be either 2 credits for 10 hours per week or 4 credits for 20 hours or more per week. MES does not offer internships for more than 4 credits. Also note that no more than eight credits can be accumulated through internship and/or individual learning contracts.
To sign up for an internship, students should find a faculty sponsor from among the MES core faculty and an internship field supervisor to help them write their internship contract. Contracts are created on my.evergreen.edu. Once the contract is signed off by the MES faculty, field supervsor, and program director, the student is registered for the number of chosen credits. There are no CRNs for internships.
