Internship Program

INTERNSHIPS Winter 2021

Important Information regarding Spring 2021 Internships: 

As outlined by Chancellor Larive, remote instruction for lecture and discussion sections, will extend for the entire Winter and Spring quarters. We are taking precautionary measures for your own health and safety and we will be offering a limited number of in-person internships in Winter and Spring quarters. We have listings for remote and in-person internships for Winter and Spring.

You can view them HERE.

For in-person field internships we are directing interns to follow the following protocols.

If you would like to participate in an outdoor, Winter 2021 internship, here are the ground rules as laid out by campus. You must agree to them before starting your internship.

  • Maintaining physical distance requirements
  • Wearing face coverings
  • Practicing consistent physical hygiene (e.,frequent hand washing)
  • Participating in daily symptom check processes 
  • Participating in testing programs as required 
  • Participating in contact tracing programs as required
  • Participating in sequestration/quarantine programs as required
  • Flu vaccination per UC policy 

IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT FALL QUARTER 2021 FROM VICE CHANCELLOR LORI KLETZER:

Below are the key general planning assumptions for fall quarter. Individual circumstances may vary for a variety of reasons, including adjustments or accommodations required by law:
  • There will be remote teaching and learning options for fall quarter. We plan to provide options that will allow students to remain fully remote by providing most classes needed for making progress toward degrees remotely. 
    • Larger lectures will be remote/online only and discussion sections could be a mix of in-person and remote.
    • Instructors will be encouraged to design class sessions for either in-person students or for remote students, but to try not to engage students in both modalities at the same time.
    • Some courses could have two offerings, one in-person and one remote/online.
  • For in-person courses, we are exploring scenarios for 50 percent classroom occupancy to facilitate social distancing, well-being and COVID mitigation.
  • We are exploring scenarios for two-thirds on-campus housing occupancy to facilitate appropriate distancing, well-being, and COVID mitigation. 
  • Departments, colleges, and other course-sponsoring units will receive guidance on in-person instruction in the next few weeks.
  • Flexibility is key — plans and scenarios may change based on the progress of the pandemic.

All Undergraduates are invited to the Environmental Studies weekly Dept. Seminar held EVERY Monday during spring quarter from 12-1:05.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

UCSC Environmental Studies students intern for a variety of local, state, national and international organizations. These organizations and businesses include educational, agricultural, non-profit, for-profit, government and non-government internship positions. Many of our more than 120 internships can be found on our Available Internships page.

Internships and your education:

Internships allow students to apply the concepts and theories they learn about in academic settings to workplace settings. As an intern, you can see how people relate with one another, test out the theories learned in classes, and observe the inner workings of the work environment in a myriad of different fields and disciplines. Work done outside the classroom brings new depth and meaning to the work done inside the classroom, and enlightens the student to the importance of their academic work. Internships can be as much about finding out what you really like as encountering what it is you do not like.

Help you define your interests:

Many students look at internships as a way to confirm their interest in a given field or discipline. An internship is a way to "taste" a type of work before you've committed to graduate school or working in a full-time position. Internship experiences can help you hone in on your area(s) of interest and focus on the type of work for which you are best suited for and work that you find most interesting.

The Environmental Studies Internship Office is committed to providing students with the necessary resources for finding the best placement for each student.

Interested? You can start the process by communicating directly with the agency, or emailing our office. You can also drop by the office during the hours posted if you would like a more thorough explanation. We placed students in more than 400 internships this past year. And, perhaps we have one waiting for you too!
