STEM at EGSC - Internships

Internship Opportunities:

Internships are great opportunities to gain work experience and develop a professional network. Students performing an internship enroll in the BIOL 4800 Internship class (3 credits). This course is part of the curriculum of the EGSC Bachelor of Science in Biology. Since 2012, EGSC established partnerships with the Emanuel Medical Center, Swainsboro Animal Hospital, and Altamaha Riverkeeper Organization. However, other partnerships can be established at the request of a student. Please contact the Biology Chair.

Emanuel Medical Center:

East Georgia State College recently joined forces with Emanuel Medical Center in Swainsboro to offer internship opportunities to students enrolled in EGSC’s Biology degree program. The goal of this partnership is to provide high-quality internship learning experiences for college students in EGSC’s department of biology, while at the same time enhancing the resources available to EMC for its patients.

Swainsboro Animal Hospital:

East Georgia State College recently teamed up with Swainsboro Animal Hospital to provide internship opportunities to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Biology program at EGSC. These internships provide a high-quality, professional experience to EGSC students interested in becoming veterinarians. The internships will also provide the required shadowing hours to apply to veterinary school.

Altamaha Riverkeeper Organization:

East Georgia State College and the Altamaha Riverkeeper Organization formed a partnership in 2015 to provide internships for biology students. Interns are required to obtain a quality control and quality assurance training trough Georgia Adopt a Stream, an EPA citizen scientist water quality program. The Chemical Monitoring program includes training in the following parameters: air temperature, water temperature, conductivity, pH and dissolved oxygen.
