Beyond The Classroom

#ASCinthefield

This summer, Arts and Sciences students were around the country — and the globe — interning, studying and volunteering. They were immersed in politics, out in left field studying the stats behind baseball, underwater studying coral reefs and everywhere in between. Along the way, they created and innovated, challenged themselves, and extended their ASC experience beyond the classroom.

Service Learning

Service Learning combines the best of active learning and citizenship by connecting course content with service projects that help the community. It is a powerful way of understanding course material by learning from experience.

Internships

Arts and Sciences Career Services can help you explore career options, find an internship and plan a strategic job search. Explore your interests, define a career goal and receive invaluable work experience through an internship offered either on or off campus.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research can be conducted independently, as part of a team, in collaboration with faculty, here at the university or elsewhere. Learning how to present your work is an important part of the undergraduate research experience. Future employers will view your research presentations as evidence that you have developed valuable written and oral communication skills.
