Experiential Learning

Your career journey starts with an idea.

Whether it’s inspired by a great class, a family friend, a historical event or a personal ambition, your early career ideas are powerful and important foundations to your career journey. Gaining real experience - through coursework, student organizations, internships, community engagement or fellowships - can make those ideas come to life. Whether a one-day community engagement experience that makes you consider a career in museum education or an internship that makes you doubt whether scientific research is really right for you, it’s experience that will help you determine what career paths might be a good fit. Our office offers several opportunities for experiential learning that will help you explore different professions and build the credentials that will make you especially competent and confident when it comes time to start your job search.
