Internships in Environmental Studies add first-hand experience by
getting students out of the classroom and into environmental work.
Internship locations are varied, but all involve at least 100 hours
of service (paid or unpaid), in the summer or during the school
year. A selection of organizations that have hosted Tufts University students is listed
To complete your Environmental Studies Internship:
Check with your Track Advisor (or the Director) to gain
approval of your proposed internship.
Do the internship (paid or unpaid). Take some pictures that
you could use in a 10-min presentation about your internship, or
that we could post on the web.
Fill out the one-page Internship Summary Form
line or at Director's office). Return the completed form to the
ENVS Program Office, 210 Packard Avenue, Miller Hall, East Rear Door, Medford.
Your description will be kept on file, to help other students explore options for
their own internships.
Students are required to sign up for ENV99 in the fall semester (if your
internship is planned for either the summer or fall) or in the spring semester
(if your internship is planned for the spring). All ENV 99 students are required
to complete a poster of their work at the end of the internship (poster template
and an example can be downloaded here), and are
strongly encouraged to present at our annual internship symposium. The internship
symposium dates will be in the ENVS Environmental Calendar, but will
also be posted here.
