All Biology and Biochem/Molecular Biology majors at Dickinson participate in a research experience. Research is a favorite activity, and many students do more than one project. Often these culminate in a presentation at a professional meeting, a publication, or an honors thesis. 

A non-research internship can also be a great experience and a step to a job or post-graduate study. Students intern at medical facilities, in museums, at agencies and businesses. Suitable internships receive credit toward the biology major.
