Real World Experience
Not all education happens in the classroom. Certain lessons can only be learned through direct hands-on experiences outside of the classroom with real world experiences in the field. Internships and other field experiences give students the opportunity to connect one-on-one with faculty, fellow students and other professionals. Students will acquire leadership and management skills, professional growth and personal fulfillment that can’t be gained in the classroom.
Students in the two year Wildlife Biology program have done Internships & Real World Experiences at places such as:
Bureau of Forestry, Claws "N" Paws, Ecoscientific Solutions, Endless Mountains Landscaping, Jerry's Sports Centers, Lackawanna County Conservation District, Lackawanna River Corridor Association, McLane Associates, Northeastern Environmental, Penn State Cooperative Extension, PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), PA Department of Transportation, Pennsylvania Fish Commission, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Schoner Environmental, Southern Tier Regional Planning & Development, Susquehanna County Soil Conservation District, US Forest Service, Urban and Community Forestry, the University of Pennsylvania Arboretum, Wyoming County Conservation District, and Yellowstone National Park.
