One-course, on-campus fall option

Students completing this JBS program will have the opportunity to participate in the ENVS 89aj Environmental Internship course in fall 2010 to further the students' understanding and involvement. (Students would do this as part of full, fall-term tuition payment to Brandeis.)

Although any student may participate in this program, JBS students would have special knowledge and training to enhance their work with one of the organizations collaborating with this JBS program or engaged in related work. Placements might include EPA or Department of Environmental Protection, Health Resources in Action and the Lead Action Collaborative, Jewish Family and Children's Service, Waltham Alliance to Create Housing, Healthy Waltham, ACE or others. 

The ENVS 89aj course requires participation in weekly seminars and assignments, a substantial final paper and formal presentation of the student's work at the Environmental Internship Symposium at the end of the semester, typically well-attended by many internship supervisors, other students and faculty and outside visitors.
