Careers and Internships

Here at the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, we launch careers from every stage. Each of our programs has built-in opportunities for experiential learning - from internships to research. To tackle the world’s most pressing needs and technological challenges, we will need to think critically from a HUMAN context - something you will be trained on in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences fields.

The demand for “human skills” will grow across all job sectors, including critical thinking, social perceptiveness, complex problem solving, communication, writing, and cultural awareness. We encourage students to seek opportunities to build their resumes inside and outside the classroom.

Out of 88% of respondents, a student completing an internship at their organization was the most influential factor in their hiring decision. - Job Outlook Report from the National Association of Colleges & Employers (2022)
