About the Program
Like an internship, the Practical Applications program awards credit for experiential learning. But while an internship offers credit for a single, long-term experience with an organization, the Practical Application program is designed to be more flexible and innovative. With the Practical Applications in Arts & Sciences program, you can earn 1-3 credits and develop practical skills through a self-designed entrepreneurial project or a combination of formal micro-internships related to a common theme.
To start exploring options for entrepreneurial work, contact an advisor with the Skandalaris Center listed below. To learn how to search for formal short-term work experiences (or "micro-internships"), contact any of the other advisors listed below.
Learning to develop an entrepreneurial project or finding work experience is itself an essential part of your career development, a skill that will help you develop creativity, purpose, and resilience in your professional life.
