Experiential Learning

Internships

You can supplement your classroom learning with appropriate on-the-job work experience arranged with local, state and federal government agencies or private corporations.

Academic credit for internship experience is granted at the discretion of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry.

These guidelines also apply for earning CHEM 489 credit for research at another institution or REU programs.

Applications are now being accepted for SCI Scholars, a summer internship program supported by the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI), the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
