Prof. Eric Wetzel examines a slide in the lab.
Research is an integral part of a Biology major’s experience at Wabash College, and there are a wide range of opportunities available. Students interested in research beyond their lab courses may engage in research with faculty on campus through independent study during the academic year (by enrolling in BIO 377 & 378) or by applying for paid summer internships. Faculty accepting applications for summer interns will post project descriptions on Ask Wally early in the spring semester.
Students may also apply for off-campus research internships. Information about some selected internships can be found by following the links to the left. Two internship programs (at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and “Deviating from the Standard” at Purdue University) have an on-campus selection process in January. See the department chair for more information.
