Beyond the Classroom

Real Experience. Actual Learning.
The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to providing paid research, internship, project and creative work opportunities for students. Knowledge, skills, and confidence acquired during research, internships, projects and creative work opportunities are among the most valuable experiences of a college education. We aim to support CAS students with stipends in order to pursue career discernment, building their networks, and provide service to our communities through the REAL program.
