Each student is required to fulfill 2 academic credits for an internship. The internship is intended as a summer employment in between the junior and senior years, and can be interdisciplinary or within your concentration. The proposal for internships requires approval of a faculty committee and the internship mentor, and the experience is overseen by a faculty advisor and the internship mentor. A written report is required.
Because timing and opportunities for an internship are not always available, the requirement has been substituted with a replacement upper division course in the past.
Internships can be on campus, with the department of your concentration, or with a company of your choice. You can be creative! Companies that have recruited on campus before with possibilities of an ESS internship are listed here, but you are certainly not limited to these. Also know that some companies use the internship as an opportunity to scope out future employment, making it a great opportunity to get ahead and think about your plans after college.
