Courses offered assist students in acquiring desirable work habits, attitudes, career awareness and other professional skills. Internship courses are a bridge between classroom learning and work with the internship directly related to the students’ major.

Work Experience students apply employability skills known as “soft skills” in a work environment. Soft skills include teamwork, effective communication, time management, adaptability, and problem solving. The skills learned in Work Experience courses help students develop skills that support career and college success.
