Internships

The Roanoke College Chemistry Department encourages students to pursue educational experiences off campus, working in various area industries. Past internships have included work in a hospital clinical laboratory, an environmental analysis laboratory, a crime lab, a cosmetics quality control laboratory, to name a few. Arrangements vary with each individual internship. In most cases, a student expresses an interest, and the Roanoke College Chemistry faculty work with the student and local contacts to arrange an appropriate internship experience.
