The Department of Biological Sciences provides credit-earning opportunities for students to work under the supervision and mentorship with faculty in directed independent research. Students desiring to take part in research should contact faculty directly to discern the availability of faculty to serve as a mentor for a project of interest to a student.
Internships provide for students to earn credit while engaging in an opportunity to work on projects in a community setting in such areas as industry, medical facilities, or field experiences. Students are supervised by a qualified external supervisor and a faculty mentor. Students may secure an internship position that compliments their degree path and seek approval by the department chair. Other internship possibilities will be posted on this site.
