Internships

“Everything noteworthy that I have achieved have, one way or another, been a result of my involvement at ASU. Being an Microsoft Student Partner (MSP) paved the way for me to get an internship at Microsoft last summer, and that opened the doors for a full time position at Microsoft waiting for me once I graduate.”

“Internships are a great way to gain new skills and knowledge, build a network, experience the career you want or explore your options for your career path.”

Research

“Science doesn't take place in a vacuum. Being part of a community of researchers is important to me because it is through our diverse experiences and ideas that we are able to make scientific advancements and discoveries.”

Rohini
Biological Sciences (Biology and Society), Business

“No school puts an emphasis on undergraduate research like ASU. Take advantage of research opportunities to get a leg-up on jobs, obtain experience for graduate school, and see hands-on why the time in the classroom really matters.”

Study Abroad

"Studying abroad was the best decision I have ever made. It was an extremely enriching and humbling experience. […] This experience gave me more confidence in myself and a new respect for the world."

Nicole
Semester Abroad in Sydney, Australia

"I spent the entire summer doing everything from studying urban planning and sustainability issues to testing water samples for toxic chemicals with Greenpeace. I experienced both rush hour traffic and high speed transit systems in the city and peaceful moments standing at a high elevation in the mountain tops with indigenous people. The knowledge and adventures I have gained from my Thailand experience have left me in awe."
