The field experience in Environmental Studies is fulfilled through an experiential learning experience in the field. Thus, the experience must pertain directly to the major and, preferably, your chosen concentration. Past students have met the field experience requirement by enrolling in a Directed Research independent study course with a faculty advisor, completing an internship, or enrolling in an appropriate study abroad program. Please note that a Directed Research course or internship must be approved by the Director of Environmental Science and Environmental Studies in order to count as a field experience. An environmental studies field experience necessarily involves experiential learning that compels the student to apply and broaden their knowledge base.
