Students in the Biology Department can gain professional experience through internships in a variety of fields. Some internships are already established; others are set up by students and faculty to accommodate a student’s specific area of interest. Students earn one (1) internship credit for every 45 hours of on-site work. In addition, meetings with faculty and written work are typically required. Up to 15 credit hours for internships can be applied to the MCLA graduation requirements.
