Class description

Biology 399 is not a class in the traditional sense. The goal of internships is to provide students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in an area that complements their standard coursework. They are typically self-arranged by students. Below is the link to the Biology website which lists some of the organizations that sponsor interns: http://www.biology.washington.edu/Academics/Undergraduate/Internships Internships differ from Biology 499 (Research Credit) in that they are generally (but not exclusively) outside the university, are more practical in nature and do not necessarily involve a research component (although the best internships do). If you are talking to an organization about doing one, it is wise to talk to me about it before you commit, to make sure that it is something that we feel is appropriate. Once the details are agreed upon, we can arrange to get you signed up for credit.
