Get real-world, hands-on experience through experiential learning opportunities. Apply what you’ve learned, explore your interests, while gaining valuable skills that will help you stand out.
Experiential learning opportunities let you apply your knowledge and insight within real-world contexts outside the classroom. By broadening your UB experience, you can gain a heightened sense of civic responsibility, sharpen your critical thinking skills, and share your unique talents, interests and passions.
These opportunities — which are typically under the mentorship of researchers, faculty and community leaders — may include internships, volunteer assignments, part-time jobs, clinical experiences, faculty-mentored research and faculty-mentored engagement projects.
It’s never too early to explore opportunities. Plan ahead to make sure you can take advantage of the best experiences for you.
Even as a student, you can explore career paths, participate in internships, make connections with employers, and cultivate the skills and work experience necessary for your success.
