Biology Student Resources

internships

Students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship (for credit) as part of their major program. Internships give students invaluable opportunities to gain experience in areas in which they might later like to pursue a career. Internships are usually arranged by the students themselves with the help of a faculty member and are supervised by the faculty member and an off-campus supervisor.

Biology students have undertaken internships at numerous cooperating agencies over the past several years, including (among others):

  • Merck and Company
  • The Nature Conservancy
