In order to enroll in either CHE 290 or CHE 299, you will need to complete a class permission request form. CHE 290 forms are available online at http://chemistry.illinoisstate.edu/research/undergraduate/ or can be obtained in the Department of Chemistry Office.
CHE 299 forms are available through the Honors website http://honors.illinoisstate.edu/academics/honors_learning/research/independent_study/
Internships can also provide students with valuable supervised experience that may enhance their academic and career goals, as well as give them an opportunity to explore and/or clarify possible future career interests. In order to be eligible for coop or internship credit, students must be juniors or seniors, have a minimum GPA of 2.5 (both cumulative and in all Chemistry coursework), and have taken a minimum of 45 hours. If you are interested in doing a Chemistry internship, see your advisor/mentor or contact Dr. Shawn Hitchcock (the coordinator of Chemistry internships) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
