First-year students debate trade policy with lawmakers. Biology majors wade into a creek in search of clean water, while their psychology-major counterparts survey nearby community members about how their actions could pollute that creek. Students learn about the prison system in a course that meets in a jail.
These are just a few of the ways that a Cabrini education connects classroom study to hands-on experience in the real world. Linking theory to practice is a central part of the Cabrini mission, found in every major and area of study.
Students enjoy a broad array of opportunities for internships and cooperative learning, working with TV stations, high-tech companies, hospitals, investment firms, government agencies, and countless other organizations.
Students conduct original research on topics ranging from nanotechnology to Civil Rights, then showcase their findings at the annual Undergraduate Arts, Research, and Scholarship Symposium.
Students gain first-hand experience of other people and cultures as they study abroad in countries on four continents.
Graduate studies programs stress the application of learning; what students learn one day, they can apply on the job the next.
These and many other opportunities send an important message about a Cabrini education: If experience is the best teacher, then Cabrini is a great place to learn.
