H&S students interested in spending a semester in NYC during the 2017-2018 Academic year are invited to attend an information session this Thursday, February 23rd from 12:10pm-1:00pm in Friends 208.
If students are unable to attend this H&S specific session, there is an additional information session for all interested students Thursday, March 2nd at 12:10pm in BUS 104.
The H&S application materials and additional information regarding ICNYC are available online.  The application to attend the Fall 2017 program is Friday, March 24th at 4:00pm.
The application requires signatures from the student, a parent/guardian, and their faculty advisor. Also required is a recommendation from the faculty member who will serve as the student’s faculty sponsor for their internship experience(s) or independent study, fieldwork, or research opportunity. H&S students are required to complete at least 3 credits of internship or independent study while in NYC. Many students choose to complete 6 credits of internship or split their experience between 2 sites for 3 credits each. Students interested in the individualized study option should contact us for more information.
Students do not need to have an internship or individualized study option secured or finalized prior to the application deadline. These must be secured/finalized and paperwork completed, processed, and approved prior to arriving in New York City.
If you have questions about ICNYC applications or the process, please contact the H&S Dean’s Office at, or x4-3102. Individuals requiring accommodations should contact Dan Haney at or x4-3409. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.

As Biochemistry majors, you have a lot of fantastic options for research.

Research can be an excellent way to learn more about your field by exploring within it. 

To help you find your best fit, you should consider two events this spring:


These casual conversations with faculty can help you consider all of your options quickly. 

Don't forget about satisfying your Inquiry-based lab requirement! You can complete this through research with a faculty (as BIOC 390) or the Experimental Biochemistry Lab. Before registering for BIOC 390, you must begin speaking with potential research advisors well ahead of the registration period.
