Professional & Applied Experiences

Professional and applied experiences are the activities you will engage in outside of the classroom. You’ll take the knowledge, skills, and tools from your academic coursework and apply them to real-world challenges. A professional or applied experience will allow you to ‘try on’ different careers, gain hands-on experience, and enhance your employability after graduation.

Try on Different Careers
Gain Hands-on Experience
Enhance Your Employability

Why & How


We only require one professional experience (except Sustainability minors), either an internship or work opportunity, that is related to your degree program. However, we encourage you to partake in as many applied experiences as possible. They will allow you to gain more hands-on experience and enhance your overall employability after graduation. These opportunities can range from additional field-related work opportunities, service or volunteer work, undergraduate research, enrollment in field and international courses, and so much more.

Service & Volunteering

Involving yourself in service or volunteering on campus or at a local or regional organization can be incredibly rewarding and make you a well-rounded candidate in your field. Join a UW organization.

Field & International Experiences

We want every single Haubie to have a field or international experience. Or more than one! We know that selecting the right opportunity can be an overwhelming process for so many reasons. We can help! See our full list of faculty-led courses.
