Experience Beyond the Classroom
Experiential learning and experiences are essential pieces in sharpening your professional skillset, making connections, putting your education into practice and clarifying interests. Typically, Brandeis undergraduate students complete between two and three experiential opportunities in the form of internships, undergraduate research, Justice Brandeis Semester (JBS) and other experiences such as community-engaged learning opportunities, creative and studio work, field-based research and Brandeis campus organizations.
Overall, experiential work-based learning is a great compliment to your academics and can help you become more confident and competitive for full-time jobs, graduate school and other post-graduation plans. Review the ways you can gain professional work experience during your time at Brandeis, below.
