Dynamic Undergraduate Research
At Calvin, you will have many opportunities on-campus to team with our professors on cutting-edge research projects. This year's summer research program supported 27 students doing full-time research.
Freshmen Research Courses
Each fall 20 first year Calvin students apply and are accepted into a two-semester research based biology course sequence. Calvin College has been selected by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to be one of 36 schools nationwide to participate in a new science education initiative.
70% of our majors participate in off-campus internships. You can get supervised practical experience in a career field that you are interested in. Your internship can be in the local area so you can continue taking classes, or you can go to an exciting location, like a national park, government agency, or business to do a paid internship during the summer. Internships provide real-world experiences in industrial or commercial organizations. You can receive course credit for your internship and it may lead to a great job after graduation.
