Career and Internship Resource Communities

The College of Science and Mathematics has developed resource communities to assist students in their search for career and internship. Students can view academic programs by visiting the program webpage. If students would like to attend a workshop or set up an appointment, they may visit the career development webpage.

JSU offers degrees in Biology. The biology program encourages students to gain experience by performing internships. Internships may take the form of summer research opportunities. Students are encouraged to travel outside of Alabama. In applying to research programs, students must be aware of program deadlines, application packets, and other materials.
