ENVS majors and minors are encouraged to take advantage of all the opportunities that a JHU education has to offer. Studying abroad or doing additional research or internships beyond the standard course requirements enrich students’ educations and enable them to obtain valuable experience in preparation for future careers.
- Studying abroad, especially in an environmentally oriented program, can be a life-changing experience that broadens a student’s perspective and strengthens his or her commitment to being an agent of positive change in the world.
- Obtaining research experience as an undergraduate is especially important for students planning to attend graduate school.
- Internships allow students to explore different career options, add skills and experience to a résumé, and make connections with potential future employers.
Graduates of the ENVS program who choose to pursue an M.S. in Environmental Sciences and Policy (ESP) or Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from JHU’s Advanced Academic Programs can apply one or more of their undergraduate courses to the M.S. degree requirements, thus shortening the time it takes to complete the masters.
