Research and Applied Learning

Luther’s academic program stresses education beyond the classroom walls and encourages students to engage in real-world learning to test their career goals and gain valuable professional experience.

Internships are a crucial component of this applied learning, and Luther helps match biology majors with competitive internships in:

  • hospitals
  • healthcare research
  • food and nutrition research
  • animal and plant biology management
  • wildlife research

Medical placements, in particular, are common among biology majors, who most frequently intern with:

  • Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center (La Crosse, Wisconsin)
  • St. Luke’s Hospital (Cedar Rapids, Iowa)
  • Winneshiek Medical Center (Decorah, Iowa)
  • Hardin Health Science Library at the University of Iowa (Iowa City, Iowa)
