A key part of the Institute’s mission is to provide you with immersive, hands-on learning as part of your studies.
Unlike other classroom-based graduate programs, these immersive experiences allow you to apply practical skills in your field of study before you graduate. Not only do you gain professional experience, but you are exposed to relevant networking opportunities that often lead to jobs after graduation.
Below are some of the options available, with more emerging as the Institute’s professional partnerships grow and change.
Institute students can apply for up to $3,000 in Experiential Learning Funding (ELF) to cover costs for eligible unpaid or minimally paid opportunities including virtual internships, volunteer opportunities, global courses, and start-ups.
This semester more than eighty Middlebury Institute students are participating in our distinguished semester-long experiential learning and practicum courses. Students are working around the globe with organizations making a positive impact in various fields while continuing their studies here at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
