Science Department Internship

Experiential Learning Requirement

All students earning bachelor's degrees in the Science Department are required to put their coursework into practice.

Students work in the field by completing an internship—BIO/CHE 488—at an off-campus site or by engaging in independent research under the guidance of a Cabrini faculty member—RBIO/RCHE 466.

Students are required to complete a minimum of 135 hours (Biology majors) or 180 hours (Chemistry majors) to meet program requirements.

The internship has been a required course in the program since 1980. A wide range of internship sites are available.

Internships complement the various interest areas in the biological and chemical sciences, including research institutes, hospitals, small biotechnology companies, environmental centers, large pharmaceutical firms, and academia.

Students are encouraged to choose an internship experience that most closely represents their individual career goals. Detailed requirements and internship content are outlined in the handbook.
