No matter what your major, there are opportunities to put what you learn in the classroom into practice. Gain real-world experience with an internship, co-op program or service learning course like these:
- Business students working with the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF) get real-world experience managing an actual portfolio of $1.5 million.
- Students chosen as congressional interns work on legislative staffs in Washington, D.C. and live in the Tech House-within walking distance of Capitol Hill.
