Our faculty take students on field trips to National Parks but also local trips to small creeks in trouble. Our students love to explore Virginia’s highest mountains but also the South’s coastal barrier islands and swamps. We are committed to sending out into the world graduates who can have fulfilling careers in Geography, Earth Science and Environmental Science and Policy.
Students have interned with places like Appalachian Sustainable Development, Aquatic Wildlife Conservation Center, Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Ecological Energy Systems, Holston River Soil and Water Conservation District, Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and many more!
