My favorite academic experience was my internship that I completed in a small village outside of Merida. I met once a week with a woman who started a fair trade co-op. By the end of the experience, I had improved my knowledge of life in her small village, her co-op, improved my Spanish speaking abilities, and made a new friendship.

Internships provide work experience related to your academic area of interest and cross-cultural interaction that is invaluable to your resume and future job options. In service-learning placements, students connect meaningful community service experiences with academic learning, reflection, personal growth and civic responsibility.
Both internships and service-learning are offered in addition to traditional course work and for academic credit only.
