Internships

Biology student in a laboratoryThe 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. Because of the successful performance of our student interns, we have forged many partnerships with excellent internship sites.
