Biology Majors & Minors

Biology Minors


Internships are not required. Students may obtain academic credit for participating in a practical learning experience outside Campbell University but often simply choose to gain work experience to strengthen their resumes for post-graduate studies and full-time employment. If the internship is for academic credit, the experience must address a biology-related problem, involve college-level work, and have a component of active, hands-on activity. Up to six (6) upper-level academic credits may be earned in this way.

Recent examples of the varied experiences gained by students in the Department of Biological Sciences include internships at:

  • Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and paramedics training/experience
  • GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Women in Science program
  • Museum of Natural Sciences (Raleigh, NC)
  • NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores
  • Northwest Georgia Science Museum
  • SeaWorld
  • South African Shark Conservancy (Gansbaai, South Africa)
  • Student Conservation Service & US National Park Service
  • Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom
  • “Summer Program for Future Doctors” (SPFD) at the East Carolina University Brodie School of Medicine
