In addition to excellent regular course offerings, the biology curriculum also includes several types of student work and research opportunities. Students may work in the department or with faculty as research assistants through the Berry College work-opportunity program, may enroll in directed studies, and may take various special topics courses. Students often take advantage of off-campus summer internships, such as those provided through the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates program, the Hughes program, conservation organizations, and environmental consultants. Most biology students take advantage of at least one of these unique opportunities for education and experience beyond the classroom. Via the School Research Committee and an E-mail distribution list, students are kept informed about internships and related off-campus opportunities. To be placed on the E-mail distribution list, contact Dr. Chris Mowry (email@example.com).
