International Environment & Resource Policy

Most students choose to pursue summer internships in their fields of interest. Select student internships include:

Global Water Partnership - Mediterranean
Athens, Greece

"I was lucky because my research project involved traveling to visit the river basin I was studying. I was developing a case-study of integrated water resource management on a transboundary river basin between Greece and Bulgaria. This work will be part of my thesis. I enjoyed working in an international setting and working collaboratively with other professionals on international environmental policy."

University of Cape Town, Graduate School of Business
Cape Town, South Africa

"Part of my internship involved creating case writing/material for use in an executive course on building energy infrastructure in Africa. I found the topic interesting and appreciated the fact that my work would be used in the near future in discussion and debate among current African energy leaders."

PACT International
La Paz, Bolivia

"My internship provided me with the chance to see the challenges and opportunities facing nonprofits that are trying to improve local governance in Bolivia. I wrote two reports, one on sustainable development best practices and the other on ‘Fundaciόn Amigos de la Naturaleza’ (Friends of Nature) and their work to help governments integrate conservation into municipal planning."
