Internships within the School of Science are often referred to as field or clinical experiences. This is because these students thrive when given the opportunity to apply the theoretical skill learned in the classroom to "real-world" situations. For some of the majors within the School, an internship or field experience is required to complete the degree. Fields like Environmental Science and Policy and Medical Technology require at least some amount of practical application to continue on to graduate programs or professional environments. Field experiences also eliminate some of the initial nerves of "diving right in," which can be incredibly helpful for students in these departments.

  • Biosphere II in Arizona
  • RPI Department of Chemistry

We ensure Marist students are more than prepared to take those steps with confidence.
