Explore career options with an internship in anything from health care to marine biology. And build enduring relationships with a committed faculty of research scientists. Undergraduate Focus All classes in the biology major are taught by R-MC faculty, and you'll find course enrollments of no more than 25 students—even in introductory classes. And R-MC biology majors are encouraged to pursue research projects as early as freshman year. Megan Jackson '14, who is pursuing an MS in forensic science, says that her summer independent Schapiro Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) project made her feel well-prepared for graduate studies. Med School Partnerships For qualified students, R-MC offers cooperative agreements for a BS/MD joint degree with Eastern Virginia Medical College (EVMS), Early Selection Program with George Washington University School of Medicine, or Preferred Applicant Track for the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. Kethelyne Beauvais '15 is a graduate student at EVMS. "I chose EVMS because the faculty and staff were very welcoming, and their campus is beautiful, similar to Randolph-Macon's," says Beauvais. "In addition, I enjoy working with local and international communities whenever I have the opportunity, and EVMS' ultimate goal is to be the most community-oriented medical school in the nation. Thus, it was a perfect fit." Career Success Immunologist, parasitologist, physician, environmental scientist, forestry specialist, infectious diseases researcher—biology majors put their R-MC experience to use pursuing graduate studies and careers in a wide variety of specialties.
