Developing Real-World Skills

The International Studies Program encourages students to participate in experiential learning which builds global knowledge and skills. Some students will study, do research, volunteer, or intern abroad.  Others will become involved with organizations across the United States or in our local communities which are addressing global issues.  There are many resources available to help students find opportunities which fit their interests and goals.

Explore the International Studies newsletter and the IS Facebook page for timely information on courses, cultural events, internships and jobs, study abroad and other activities of interest to International Studies students.  

Schedule an appointment with the International Studies academic advisor to discuss how experiential learning can fit into your individual graduation plan.

Schedule an appointment with a Pomerantz Career Center advisor to learn how to  find opportunities (such as student jobs, leadership positions in student organizations, internships, etc.), which build experience and skills.
