Get real-world, hands-on experience through experiential learning opportunities. Apply what you’ve learned and 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.
There are numerous opportunities to participate in experiential learning throughout Student Life.
