We offer stimulating and challenging classes, but learning opportunities for students extend well beyond the classroom. Our students study abroad, pursue internships, and participate in a variety of research experiences. These activities can be undertaken during the semester, over the summer, or during January. Consult with your adviser early and often to find the best opportunities for your interests and long term plans.
Jobs & Internships
Our department is often asked to share information from other organizations with our students. We consolidate that information here for your convenience; however, we have not thoroughly researched every one of these announcements. If you are considering any opportunity listed here, exercise caution, and if you have questions, please talk with a faculty member in the department.
