We have developed working relationships with local agencies and non-profit organizations that allow our students to engage with the professional community while building their technical skills in the field. Students pursue a variety of internship opportunities throughout the region. Recent students have worked with MT Fish Wildlife and Parks, USDA APHIS, the Audubon Education Center, the Omaha Zoo, Tippet Rise, Wind River National Park, USFS, and Montana Wilderness Association, and as research assistants in the field with various academic institutions studying wolves, bats, and fish.
Environmental Science faculty are engaged in active research projects in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and students in the program are involved in research both inside the classroom and as independent student researchers. Students are invited to both assist with current research efforts and develop their own research projects.
