The latest coronavirus information and fall 2020 updates: marquette.edu/coronavirus.
Approval of credit-bearing (BIOL/INES) summer internships: Given the current COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with Marquette’s current COVID-19 guidelines, the Department of Biological Sciences and the Environmental Studies program will not be approving on-site (i.e. in person) internship experiences for BIOL/INES academic credit this summer. In making this decision, we considered the fact that Wisconsin and many other states are currently under safer-at-home orders, the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation, and most importantly, the health and safety of our students. Internship placements where a student would be working 100 % remotely may still be considered for approval for academic credit. Students should apply as usual through the Launch Internship Program website to seek approval of their remote internship opportunities as a BIOL/INES credit bearing internship. We understand from many students and employers that numerous internship opportunities are being cancelled this summer and recruitment plans are on hold for the Fall semester. We will continue to evaluate the situation as the Fall semester approaches, but please note it remains a possibility that we will not be approving on-site internship experiences for BIOL/INES credit this coming Fall semester also.
The Launch Program is a mechanism to allow undergraduate majors in the Department of Biological Sciences to earn biology (BIOL) or environmental studies (INES) course credit for relevant 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 an elective course (BIOL/INES 4987: Applying the Internship Experience), a 3 credit seminar course that focuses on career preparedness, and encourages students to reflect on and communicate the skills and knowledge that they have gained during their internship experience.
