The primary purpose of the internship is to provide a supervised work experience for emerging outdoor educators as they transition from the academic arena to the employment arena as full-time professionals. The internship provides the student, the facility supervisor, and the faculty supervisor with an opportunity to assess student performance in a pre-employment setting and to use that assessment to enhance job performance and future job placement.

"Most of what we do in the DOE is hands on and experiential, so what better way to put what you have learned into direct practice than have an applied learning experience.  It is the most beneficial experience for your future to be able to put into action all of what you have taken the past years to learn."  - Walker Hendry (B.S. '11)
