Applied Learning Center

‌‌The Applied Learning Center is the home of the Internship Program, the Service Learning Program, The Center for Urban Connections and the Undergraduate Research Program.

These programs represent "high impact educational practices" documented by George Kuh and the Association of American Colleges and Universities. They provide opportunities for student learning through experiences outside of the classroom. 


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 Internshp Program assists students with the process of finding and internship.  We also work with students to get academic credit for their internships for most majors.  

We have information for students, employers and faculty to learn more about internships at MSU Denver.
