Research & Internships

Students in the biology department are encouraged to be involved with research at some point during their undergraduate studies. Many options, both on and off campus, allow students to be involved in a variety of research areas that fit their interests. In each project, students are trained in specific research techniques that allow them to participate in, rather than just observe, the process.
