Professional Development

Students in a professional setting


In the lab, in the office, in the field – your Honors College opportunities are endless.

Developing “soft skills” is a critical component for Honors students as they prepare for life beyond college. One way of developing your communication, teamwork and professionalism is by working in real-world settings. The Honors College offers a range of venues on campus and beyond for students to take on meaningful professional development opportunities.

Honors features a variety of experiences that will help you strengthen your preparedness for the workforce and for graduate or professional school. We also provide opportunities to prepare and pursue relevant engagement experiences to be successful in medical, law and graduate school. In many cases, internship funding is available.


Grow your professional network and gain résumé-building experience before you graduate by participating in an honors internship.
