Beyond the walls — and borders
Your learning will take you to some of the most intriguing and inspiring places, from around the corner to around the world. Studying and working outside the classroom challenges you — and changes you. The experiences make you more confident, more independent and better prepared for whatever profession you pursue.
At Quinnipiac, a world-sized classroom is a concept that is critical to a transformative student experience. It includes internships, clinical work, service learning programs, guided research, student organizations and multidisciplinary projects — and more.
It means hundreds of internship sites available to our business students; inner-city schools where our education students teach; research sites in Hungary and Mexico; universities in Ireland and Australia, and museums in Italy. It includes farms an hour from campus, where our students perform health screenings for migrant workers. It means raising more than a quarter of a million dollars to help fight childhood cancer through QTHON, one of our more than 150 student-run groups.
It’s this experiential learning that will prepare you to be an engaged, culturally aware citizen, while learning the kinds of adaptable skills that will serve you for a lifetime.
