GLES M.A. graduates are prepared for advanced research, professional employment, or study at the Ph.D. level. GLES M.S. students are prepared for leadership roles in industry, consulting firms, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and governmental agencies that deal with the management of resources within the Great Lakes and surrounding watershed. During their graduate program, GLES M.S. students must do an internship (GLC 688) during the second year of their program. The resources available on this webpage have been designed to help GLES students identify career and internship opportunities in the environmental science field.
Internship, full-time, and part-time job opportunities are provided by the Career Development Center (CDC) through the Online Resource for Career Advancement (ORCA). For technical support, contact the CDC. The CDC provides many services to assist students in their career decision-making, graduate school planning, job and internship searching and pursuit of volunteer and service learning opportunities.
