Research and Internships Introduction


Maryland students have the best of both worlds.

On campus, you have opportunities to do undergraduate research in world-class laboratories under the mentorship of renowned faculty researchers.

If you choose to go off campus, you are a short commute away from one of the nation’s largest concentrations of biotech firms, federal research labs and research hospitals. Research internships and clinical internships are the most common among chemistry, biochemistry and biological sciences majors, but students also find opportunities to apply their classroom learning to industry, science education and community service. Most students do more than one internship during their undergraduate years.

We hope you find this website a useful resource as you explore internship, research and career opportunities.
