Student Preparation for the International Environmental Profession
Thomas, Ian; Meehan, Barry
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v34 n1 p91-107 Feb 2010
Many universities have strategies for exposing students to international experiences, but little is reported on their implementation. One example of an implemented activity is the multidisciplinary research project for undergraduate environment students, at RMIT University, that both prepares students to work in the environment profession and exposes them to working in an international context. Feedback from project participants demonstrates that the project has played an important part in their preparation for professional employment. Responses demonstrated that the project provided a mechanism to prepare them for working in an international context regarding cultural awareness, and especially preparation for the many professional and personal challenges that may be encountered.
