Internships and International Programs


A wide array of internships provide students with opportunities to apply principles learned in their coursework, explore career options, and make links with potential employers. The WEC Internship Program places students with conservation and management agencies throughout Florida. Other students participate in faculty research at UF or national internship programs such as those sponsored by the Student Conservation Association.

International Programs

By participating in field studies abroad, many WEC students gain first hand experience with unique ecosystems, international conservation issues, and local cultures in diverse systems such as the tropical forests of Costa Rica, savannas of Africa, and coral reefs of Australia. Credits for courses taken abroad through the international programs at UF (and many other institutions) can be applied toward your degree.
