Environmental Science Internships

Launch Your Career

You can't beat real work experience.

There’s the old joke that companies only want people with prior experience for entry level jobs. How are you supposed to get experience if you can’t get hired? The answer is internships during your undergraduate career. Employers hire people with experience and skills. And a college degree alone doesn't give you the skills and experience you need.

On Campus Internships

The Richter Museum, Herbarium and Arboretum have internships available for students – some positions include day-to-day operations, while others help with the curation and preparation of specimens. In the summer, technicians are hired to help control invasive plants on our natural areas. Interested students should contact Dr. Robert Howe for further information on the availability of positions.

Off Campus Opportunities

Internships play a crucial role in your career development, so the more the merrier. To bolster your resume and prepare for the workforce, look for opportunities off campus. While many internships are linked to UW-Green Bay, you might want to do an internship in a different ecological environment to broaden your knowledge.

Diverse Facets
to Explore

"Environmental careers are as diverse as environmental issues; UW-Green Bay students can explore many facets of environmental industries and environmental conservation. The UW-Green Bay faculty and Cofrin Center for Biodiversity provided research, presentation, career opportunities and hands-on experience I needed to decide on my career path within environmental science and succeed in it."
