Internships are a vital part of the Bethel experience. They provide learning opportunities for our students to utilize their knowledge and skills in a practical, structured off-campus setting. While many biology majors plan to pursue careers in the health sciences, many additional career options are available to biology majors. Internships provide a glimpse into the wide range of choices available.

Internship experiences can:

  • Help students evaluate the fit between their career goals and a given biology-related work experience.
  • Allow students to engage in problem-solving and team dynamics outside the academic environment.

What Kinds of Internships Are Available?

Opportunities are wide-ranging: from bench research-related experiences to field biology, from healthcare to education.
