Area of Study
Are you interested in an internship or community-engaged research? This 4-credit 3980 course helps connect internship activities with academic approaches to knowledge and community engagement, sharing different ways to explore environments and share the resulting observations with communities who would be interested. If you are planning an internship or community-engaged research project in 2016 or 2017 (including over next summer), or if you’d like to think about how to build your resume and academic record by connecting your interests and your internship activities, this course will be helpful for you! Goals: To support Environmental Studies interns in developing and carrying out meaningful internships, and to support engagement with academic knowledge related to internships that is useful for students, internship host sites, and other audiences. Content: We will work together and with communities of practice on challenging society/environment topics, as organized partly by students, through their internships, and partly by instructor. Although we will focus on case studies of urban agriculture, soil and land remediation, and community food movement work, we are also open to all other environmental studies topics. Prerequisite: ESTD 1100 or permission of the instructor. Recommended as an accompaniment to, preparation for, or follow up from an ESTD internship, which could be undertaken during summer or spring, and is not required. Interns from related fields of study are also welcome.
