BIO 4990: Research in Biology
While coursework and a high GPA are of primary importance to someone who wants to become a working biologist, research experience is highly desirable for someone who hopes to go on to graduate school and/or work in biological/medical research. One possible way to gain research experience is through our course BIO 4990: Research in Biology.
Summer Research Interships (Web Links)
Another excellent way to gain research experience is by being awarded a summer research internship at another institution, research lab, etc. Some students are able to complete 1-2 such internships during their undergraduate years at UNCP. Such experiences broaden one's knowledge of science, while strengthening one's resume by illustrating interest and commitment to biology.
You should look and apply early for internships. It seems that those who do so have a slight edge over those who wait until the last minute. View a list of some institutions/websites that contain information concerning internships or similar opportunities.
