Experiential Learning is key to an education through the College of Arts and Sciences. As an institution that recognizes the importance of learning beyond the classroom, we aim to provide paid research, internship, project, or creative work opportunities for all undergraduate students within the College. Through the REAL Program, students can discover their interests, gain a rich understanding of a particular field, discern their career goals, explore future employment fields, and grow their professional networks. Experiences funded through REAL last up to ten weeks during the summer; alternatively, our REAL@Work program supports multidisciplinary team-based projects during the academic quarters.

She has really helped the Learning Department move forward with our goals to revamp our training. She has great ideas. I look forward to working with her for the rest of the summer and would love to continue into the school year.
