The Department of Biology offers an internship program that provides practical work experience to majors in biology, environmental studies and marine science/biology.
Through internships with private industry, nonprofit organizations and government agencies, students gain on-the-job experience in areas such as biomedical research, fisheries biology, veterinary medicine, environmental biology and mariculture.
One example of an internship in which UT students frequently participate is in the care and rehab program takes place at the now world-famous manatee program at ZooTampa at Lowry Park. Here, students help in the care and rehabilitation of one of Florida's most endangered species, the West Indian manatee. They also work directly with a variety of animals and participate in programs that educate students in public schools and the general public.
The list below represents a sample of some of the other internships offered by the Department of Biology. Most are local and may be done during fall, spring or summer semesters. Others are not local, but still in Florida and may be completed during the summer. Many opportunities are also available during the summer months in locations throughout the United States.
