An Internship in Environmental Science
The Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES) at Miami University has offered a Master of Environmental Science since 1969. I have completed the class work needed for a Masters Degree concentrating in ‘Resource Analysis’. The program required a practicum, internship or thesis to complete the degree. As do most IES students, I chose the internship option so that I could gain valuable hands-on experience in environmental consulting. I have always been interested in consulting work because it represented a bridge between environmentalists and developers who often entertain opposite goals. Here I could use my botanical and environmental background to ensure that developers and government entities develop the landscape within the framework of Ohio’s laws. In addition, I could work with engineers at EMH&T, Inc. to minimize the effects of development upon the environment under the current laws. I completed the internship with Evans, Mechwart, Hambleton and Tilton (EMH&T) Inc. in Columbus, Ohio.
