Research & Internships

Experiential learning

The University of Washington places a strong emphasis on experiential learning, which is the process of learning by doing and reflecting on your experiences. High impact experiences such as research, internships, volunteering, engaging in student groups, and studying abroad can give you the perfect opportunity to connect theoretical science with real-world applications, build a strong résumé, network with potential future colleagues and employers, and permanently enrich your worldview and sense of self.
