Internship Success Stories

Erica ChristensenDuring the Spring 2009 semester, Erica Christensen completed her internship with the Air Policy Office at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). "I was so lucky with my placement because I was able to experience the changes made by President Obama and witness the growing developments of climate policy. I learned more than I could have imagined and made great connections." She has also completed an unpaid internship with a political campaign and had a paid summer position with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. Christensen plans to attend graduate school for global environmental policy or sustainability.
