Further Your Biology Knowledge


Think globally and consider learning opportunities not available on campus. Apply for an internship to get experience in the field you hope to pursue after you graduate.

Our students have found internships in the following places:

  • Belize, studying rain forests and their ecology.
  • Romania, assisting a forensic anthropological dig.
  • San Francisco, conducting psychology research.
  • Vermillion at the University of South Dakota, researching microbiology.

With the financial help of Hughes Grant-in-Aid Program, find internships or research opportunities off campus and abroad. These experiences can lead to permanent positions following graduation. Our recent grads are teachers, researchers and doctors.
