Hands-on Learning

Put your knowledge to work in the world—before you graduate.

A student and employer shake hands at a career fair.Oglethorpe gives you that chance – from faculty-led excursions and short-term trips to longer-term participation through experience-based learning. Oglethorpe is uniquely positioned to offer exceptional academics through The CORE from the international city of Atlanta. With that combination, you can explore experiences that let you test what you learn.

With help from advisors, you decide how to map your four-year journey. And every one is unique. That journey may include any combination of experiences through study abroad (a few weeks, or a semester), internships (on the other side of the world, or down the street), research (independent, or side-by-side with your professor), or civic engagement (as part of your course of study, or just because you’re driven to make a difference, or both).
