When you think about a college education, classroom learning is probably what comes first to mind. But a student's education is increasingly about learning experiences that take place outside the classroom. Summer internships or work experiences can provide real-world perspective and opportunities to apply what you have learned in the classroom.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Conducting research as an undergraduate is a unique opportunity to be part of Purdue's world-renowned research and offers an important advantage to those planning to pursue a graduate or professional degree. Undergraduate research also provides a practical way to explore a career in nutrition research.
