LAS International Programs offers various opportunities for students who are eager to engage in global learning. Students are able to work virtually with international organizations, collaborate on projects, conduct research with international faculty and students, and take online courses featuring faculty abroad.
The cost of participation varies by program. Students in the College of LAS are encouraged to apply for the Life + Career Design Scholarship to cover the costs of their Virtual Global Experience program.
If you would like to discuss your options and how you can achieve your professional development goals, you can schedule an appointment with a LAS International Programs advisor to get more information and ask questions.
Note: Students are welcome to explore options in Handshake and beyond what is listed below.
Engaging in virtual global internships, service-learning, and volunteer projects enable students to gain valuable professional experience and explore potential career paths to further develop their goals for the future. International work experiences provide students the opportunity to build rapport with professionals around the world and capitalize on these relationships when pursuing future professional opportunities.
Working remotely can be challenging, however, the skills you gain from this experience are sought after by employers. Through remote work, students develop the ability to work independently, improve upon their written communication skills, and can demonstrate their ability to adapt to new technology.
