Pillar Four: Field Experience

Field experiences stem from a long tradition of allowing students to apply principles learned in the classroom in the real world. These opportunities allow for a greater understanding of real challenges, people, organizations, the broader world and their unique role in it. This becomes the testing ground where strengths and weaknesses are exposed and can be analyzed and dealt with under the guidance of a mentor.  

Internships can be in either the private or public sector and will primarily center upon service in public policy formation, state and national government, media, and education. However, students have found themselves lobbying and negotiating against overreaching government at United Nations conferences in New York, Istanbul and Geneva, as well as developing proposals for agricultural, educational, and economic development in developing nations such as Uganda, Paraguay and Kenya.  Undergraduate students complete two required field-experiences.
