Internships

Accreditation Council Photo

The Department of Biology has an active internship program, and we encourage all of our students to consider this option.

Internships are arguably the most valuable experience that we can offer to our majors. Experiential education enhances our students’ knowledge, skills and abilities, and allows them to increase professional competence in a real world setting.  Interns are only placed in sites that meet academic institution standards and are willing and able to provide hands-on experiences and develop activities/projects where interns can apply scientific principles. Interns are closely supervised by their internship coordinator through weekly communications and regular site visits. Because of the successful performance of our student interns, we have forged many partnerships with excellent internship sites.
