GEOG 499 - Directed Internship or Research Project


In this course, students will apply the skills they have acquired in their geography courses to actual issues outside of the classroom in an experiential learning environment. Often, this work will take the form of a directed internship with a company or other community partner organization. It may also take the form of a faculty-directed research project, often in conjunction with community partners. While most of the work will be done outside of the classroom, all enrolled students will meet with the professor five times over the course of the semester in order to share experiences about their internships or projects, troubleshoot and solve problems collectively, discuss ethics and philosophies, and prepare their presentations and final reports. Students will leave this course with a thorough understanding of how to apply their geographic skills in a professional setting, and be able to demonstrate that they can do so to potential employers. Students must have an instructor-approved internship or project in order to enroll in this class.

Requisites: Nine (9) credits of 300-400 level GEOG courses

Credits:3 cr

Notes: Before enrolling, student must have an instructor-approved internship already lined up.
