Special Programs and Opportunities
Your opportunities to dig deep in biochemistry extend far beyond the classroom. Check out the following ways you can get involved.
We’re one of the first colleges in the country to offer undergraduate student/faculty collaborative research in chemistry. A strong research program is integral to our department, and we offer many opportunities for students to participate.
Hope also offers paid research opportunities during the summer months through our Summer Undergraduate Research Function (SURF) program. For the past 25 years, Hope College has had a continually funded program through the National Science Foundation: Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF-REU). We host over 45 chemistry research students every summer, with more than a dozen research groups in chemistry.
INTERNSHIPS AND OFF-CAMPUS STUDY
Are you looking for an internship in biochemistry? Contact the internship coordinator at the Boerigter Center for Calling and Career to begin your search.
There are many off-campus study opportunities available to biochemistry majors, including the Philadelphia Center program. Talk to your academic advisor and stop by the Fried Center for Global Engagement to plan for your off-campus study experience.
We offer all students at Hope the opportunity to join the Biochemistry Club. Our chapter presents labwork, hosts biochemistry seminar speakers and creates science activities for elementary students. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
