All internships must be set up with the appropriate coordinator before beginning work, in order to count for course credit.
Biology Internship (Bio 300) and Microbiology Internship (Bio 301) and Environmental Health Internship (Bio 302) are intended to give you the opportunity to work in off-campus settings, both in the public and private sector, and to further your understanding of biology and various career pathways in – or closely related to – the biological sciences.
Some internships can provide income in addition to college credit. Internship credits count as upper-division elective credits for majors in this department.
