Aspiring architect seeks to leverage liberal arts degree

I am graduating early from Brandeis this December with a BA in Environmental Studies and a minor in Architectural Studies. I am looking to do an internship for an architecture firm this spring with a focus (or branch focusing on) sustainable/green design. I have two internship experiences- one working in a firm with a focus on sustainable residential design and the other, a firm which primarily does LEED certifications. I am looking for advice from professionals in Boston without a degree in a traditional architecture program. How do I appear competitive in the market without a Bachelor of Architecture but with a degree from an liberal arts program like Brandeis? Thank you!
