  • Internships and Careers 
    in Environmental Science

    Environmental Science CareersStudents in the environmental science program gain theoretical and practical experience in the classroom and laboratories, but the learning process extends beyond the classroom. Internships offer the opportunity to gain real-world experience before graduation, allowing our students to be better prepared for the competitive field of environmental science. In recent years, our students have interned at organizations such as:

    • The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection
    • Cornell University
    • The Loyalhanna Watershed Association
    • The Pittsburgh Zoo
    • and others.

    As a result of these internships, our students are prepared for a career in environmental science. In fact, the knowledge gained in the classroom combined with the experience gained during an internship are an ideal preparation for a career in environmental monitoring or testing, environmental communications, watershed management, environmental education and other related industries.
