A six-month internship experience provides students with an opportunity to gain workplace experience in marine biology in either an academic setting, or within the private or public sector.  This transition from classroom to workplace allows students to put the experience gained in the year of coursework to use while working with academic research scientists, state and federal agencies, or private consulting firms.

Although our students have had success in obtaining paid internships, we do not guarantee that all internships will result in paid positions. While the majority of internships will be located in New England, students have pursued internships as far afield as Australia and Taiwan.
