Internships

Internships are intended to provide off-campus opportunities for students in their field of study. We encourage our students to "try on" their career options by entering the workforce through internships. The broad relevance of most biological topics makes many internship possibilities available for our majors.

We regularly post new internship opportunities on our Facebook page. The best recommendation is to visit our Facebook page frequently. We also post internship and summer training fellowship announcements outside the biology office - Trafton South 247.

Students interested in receiving credit for internships should speak with their advisor to get permission to register for enrollment in BIOL 497 or BIOL 498.

Below are few examples of companies or agencies that routinely provide opportunities. Some employers also list their internships through the Career Development Center on campus. Those positions may be listed on our Potential Employers page.

Note: Larger companies tend to have formal internship application processes, which are often online. Smaller ones often do not; in which case, you should send a cover letter and résumé introducing yourself and describing your interest in an internship to their Human Resources department.
