Professional Development

When you think about a college education, classroom learning is most-likely what comes first to mind. However, college is increasingly about learning experiences that take place outside the classroom. To enhance your classroom education, all students in the Department of Consumer Science are required to complete an internship or field experience in their area of study as part of graduation requirements.
