  • Service Learning Classes integrate voluntary, unpaid community service that addresses community needs into a credit-bearing course.
  • Practicums involve work experience under the supervision of an experienced registered or licensed professional in any discipline that requires practice-based work experience for professional licensure or certification. Practicums are generally unpaid, and, as the work is done in a supervised setting, students do not have their own workload/caseload.
  • Co-operative Education consists of alternating academic and paid work terms that provide experience in a workplace setting related to the student’s field of study.
  • Applied Research engages students in research that deals with community-driven, or workplace-related issues.
  • You can post your paid employment opportunities on Career Connection, our online job posting board, free of charge.
