BIOL 492 Senior Capstone - Internship

BIOL 492-Senior Capstone Each Biology major will perform a capstone experience in their senior year. The experience can take the form of research, an internship or course, and will provide significant learning experiences in problem solving and written and oral communication. Capstone Internship: The student will fulfill expectations for capstone internship via a 3 credit internship experience (120 hours). Acceptable experiences include job apprenticeships (not unlike the clinical internships of MT students) involving very active learning. Research projects performed off-campus (not including REUs) are also acceptable as capstone internship experiences. A site supervisor will provide evaluations to the faculty mentor; the faculty mentor will bear responsibility for the final evaluation of the learning experience. A formal paper will be expected. Oral presentation will occur during a capstone UGR/internship symposia. Note: Students opting for a capstone experience that does not involve significant laboratory or field work will be required to take at least one lab or field course as part of their 12 hours of upper level Biology electives.
