Alison J Crowe
Weekly workshop to prepare students for off-campus research internships. Prerequisite: either BIOL 220, B BIO 220, or TESC 140. Credit/no-credit only.
This course is designed to introduce students to different career/internship opportunities in biology. We will not be matching students with specific internships, but rather will be providing students with resources to help them explore different opportunities on their own. By the end of the class, students will have a working resume and have filled out an application for an internship opportunity.
