Experiential Learning

The experiential learning program connects you with local organizations to apply your academic learning in a real-world setting, complementing the Assumption education.

Career and Learning Opportunities

One of the cornerstones of an Assumption University education is developing well-rounded students who have learning experiences beyond the walls of a classroom. Whether it’s using one’s skills and talents in volunteering in the community, engaging in internships, or through one of the many study abroad programs, Assumption students are provided many opportunities to apply their knowledge in a real-world setting.

The University's experiential learning program is dedicated to connecting students with local organizations to apply what they have learned in the classroom within a professional organization while still an undergraduate.

Housed in the Career Development and Internship Center, the goal of the program is to provide career and learning opportunities for students and build upon Assumption’s relationships with organizations throughout the greater Worcester community. The business studies coursework and rich liberal arts foundation enables students to identify areas of need for local organizations and create strategies and solutions. In addition, the students can also support the organizations in the execution and implementation of these recommendations. Some students have helped organizations create a marketing plan, design social media initiatives, analyze operations to identify potential cost reductions or improve efficiency, help with bookkeeping and financial statements, or prepare tax returns.
