Internships

The Montana Natural History Center offers internships through the University of Montana, but these opportunities are also offered independently. MNHC internships offer an excellent opportunity to gain practical experience in natural history education as part of a professional non-profit organization. Participating interns will acquire essential teaching and program development skills through involvement in outdoor and environmental education and community events. Interns will have the flexibility to work in programs of specific interest to them and will be able to emphasize skills they wish to further develop. Credit is available (1 credit for every 3 hours of work per week).

Interns should be self-motivated and committed to the principles of environmental education. Independent study credits are also available. Internships are unique opportunities to create, build, and enhance the educational exhibits and programs at MNHC.

For more information and for application information, please contact Stephanie Laporte Potts at 406.327.0405 ext. 209 or spotts [at] montananaturalist [dot] org.
