Students may participate in either research classes or an internship to enhance their academic experience and build their resume at Hofstra.
CHEM 151 and 152, BCHM 182 and 183, and FOR 182 are research classes that students can take for variable credit (1-3 s.h.), and they are repeatable for credit. Independent study classes are handled under the Special Topics number (CHEM/BCHM/FOR 192).
If a student wishes to do an internship, faculty will help to identify internship opportunities. Students who have identified a potential internship opportunity may present it to their faculty adviser or the Chair of Chemistry William Nirode (Email or 516-463-5540).
Other resources for finding internships include the Hofstra Career Center and the Office of Off-Campus Education (OCE). OCE provides support and leads on how to obtain an internship that fulfills HCLAS degree requirements.
