Internships can 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 co-op or internship credit, students must be juniors or seniors, have a minimum GPA of 2.2 (both cumulative and in all Chemistry coursework), and have taken a minimum of 15 hours of Chemistry courses relevant to the internship.

If you are interested in doing a Chemistry internship, see your advisor/mentor or contact Dr. Shawn Hitchcock, Coordinator of Chemistry Internships, at (309) 438-7854 or in SLB 317.
