Internships and Professional Opportunities

Through internships and volunteer opportunities in professional settings, students can gain real-world experience relevant to their academic or career interests. They can learn how knowledge from their discipline is applied in different professions, acquire technical and professional skills and explore and strengthen academic and career goals. Such experiences enhance your employment prospects upon graduation and can be crucial for admission to professional schools in health or veterinary medicine.

Internships

How to find internships and professional experiences:

Getting course credit: Some programs in our department require a student to earn credit for experiential learning, and for some curricula pre-approved professional opportunities can fulfill that requirement. Students should work with their advisers to understand their requirement for experiential learning. Curricula that do not require such experiences can offer elective credit to students for approved work. Credit will not be rewarded retroactively for prior work.

Teaching Experience

Undergraduates interested in gaining teaching experience or learning more about science education can work with faculty in our department or other departments who specialize in undergraduate education.
