The Student to Professional Internship Network affords students at the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) the opportunity to gain experience related to their course of study or career interests while earning academic credits to fulfill their SEBS experience-based education requirement. Credits are earned through the completion of academic assignments while the student is engaged in part-time or full-time work experience within business, industry, government or non-profit organizations.
