Experiential Learning Opportunities

Get yourself “career-ready” by engaging in experiential learning opportunities. What is experiential learning? Experiential Learning consists of activities such as internships, co-ops, research, clinical, part-time jobs, and more.

Internships are work/learning experiences that provide a hands-on way for students to confirm choice of major and/or career.

UConn Co-ops are paid, full-time working opportunities lasting at least the length of a semester, which occur while a student is registered at UConn.
