Undergraduate Research Opportunities


Research internships provide an opportunity to experience biology instead of just learning about Biology in the classroom. What you learn in the research laboratory will complement what you learn in the classroom, and you will end up with a much greater depth of understanding. Research internships are available to all Biology majors regardless of how many courses you have taken. Research internships can be taken for credit with up to 3 credits serving as part of your major and 3 additional credits serving as elective credit.


If you would like to work on a project in a research laboratory that deals with some aspect of the Biological Sciences, Dr. Ely will be glad to help you find an appropriate faculty research mentor. You can contact him for an appointment at 777-2768, ely@sc.edu, or by coming to CLS701. Before your appointment, go to UGresearch.html and study the list of potential mentors to determine whose interests are most closely allied with yours.
