                                   Summer 2009 Master’s Students’ Internships

                   Each summer our Master’s Degree students undertake internships and research
                   projects domestically and around the world. Typical internships occur between the
                   first and second years of the program; occasionally internships last for longer than
                   the summer. Some students undertake multiple experiences. This list shows the rich
                   and diverse internships that F&ES students had in the summer of 2009.
