Do more than go to class, get involved in the chemistry department. Joining a student organization helps you get to know other students in your major, build your resume and make connections before graduation. Check out your opportunities to get involved in the chemistry and biochemistry department.
The Summer Science Research Internship program is sponsored by the Welch Foundation (Chemistry Department) and the Redlich Trust (Biology Department). This support brings undergraduate students together during the summer at Texas Wesleyan University for an eight-week natural sciences research experience. Participants become familiar with the varied disciplines and methodology used in natural science research.
This year, topics in Organic and Electro-Chemistry, Biochemistry, Community and Population Ecology are offered to six students that have completed introductory coursework in Biology and Chemistry. Students awarded the summer research internship are expected to work eight-hour days, five days per week for eight weeks. Compensation is $10.10 an hour. The program begins at 8 a.m. June 3 and lasts through Wednesday, July 31, 2019.
