Research Credit and Internships for Entomology Majors

ENTMLGY 4998    Undergraduate Research in Entomology    1 credit
ENTMLGY 4999    Research with Distinction    1 credit
ENTMLGY 4999H  Honors Research with Distinction 1 credit

The Entomology major requires hands-on experience through student internships. Internships are customizable by student interest.  While some students use research experience with entomology faculty as their internship, many students secure hands-on experiences outside the university through government agencies, non-profits, and private business and consulting firms. 

Student Assistant Jobs

Many Entomology faculty employ undergraduate students to develop lab skills and a passion for reseach. Lab experience may occur as part of of the major-required internship (unpaid), in research credits. However, many labs also hire undergrads as student research assistants (paid) to work in labs or research fields.

Contact the faculty member directly to discuss internship or employment opportunities.
