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 globe. 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 means 150 internship sites available to our business students, and inner-city schools where our education students teach. Research sites in Hungary and Mexico, universities in Ireland and Australia, and museums in Italy. It means farms an hour from campus where our students perform health screenings for migrant workers. These experiences prepare graduates to be engaged, culturally aware citizens and teach the kinds of adaptable skills that will serve them for a lifetime.
