Internships are available and often serve as stepping-stones to employment and entry into professional careers. Although internships are not required for graduation, they are encouraged. Students can earn up to three hours of internship credit towards their Biology degree by registering for either BIOL 461 (1 credit) or BIOL 463 (3 credits). Before registration in these courses can occur, an internship site must be established and an agreement form completed.
