Labeling insectsIn general the Norris Center sponsors students for internships in four ways:

1) Norris Center Internships (2-unit or 5-unit)

2) Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History internships (usually through the Webster Fellowship)

3) Chancellor's Undergraduate Internship Program interns that help the Norris Center with outreach. 

4) As a senior research project, senior thesis or independent research. Past projects have had a diverse range of projects, including curation of natural history collections, teaching student-led seminars, taxidermy, and conducting self-designed natural history projects.
