Internships are work experiences related to a student's major. They can be paid or unpaid and can often be done for academic credit.
The Internship Program assists students with the process of finding an internship. We also work with students to get academic credit for their internships for most majors.
Research projects enhance students' preparation for employment and graduate school. The Undergraduate Research Program provides support for students interested in research projects and the faculty who mentor them. Projects and activities include:
- Student Mini-Grants
- The Undergraduate Research Conference: A Symposium of Scholarly Works and Creative Projects
- Student workshops
- Community-Based Research Fellows
Service Learning connects faculty and community agencies for service-based learning projects related to the material covered in a specific class. Service learning designated classes help students seek out and find classes with hands-on projects.
