Launch: Internships in Biology

The Launch internship program is a mechanism to allow undergraduate majors in the Department of Biological Sciences to receive biology course credit for internship experiences.

Internships provide real-world experience where students can apply what they learn in the classroom to future career options. Students with an approved internship can enroll in a 3-credit elective course (BIOL 4987: Applying the Internship Experience) that counts toward their degree.

Tell us about your interests and/or your questions about internships.
