Practicum 3: Environmental Management and Administration

Course details

In this practicum, students will be matched with a partner organization to gain hands-on experience in a relevant field. Specific projects and work activities will be determined by the partner organization and student, but should include applied learnings pertaining to environmental management and administration. Environmental management is an integrative discipline that requires a broad technical background on the sciences used to manage ecosystems, plus the skills to assess and address management situations from a social and economic perspective, based on land use planning, systems analysis and other management and decision-making tools. Activities/projects should help students build technical knowledge and skills through practical experience, and ultimately enhance understanding of a career in environmental management. Students will evaluate their experiences and learnings through written assignments.
