In their second and third years, students choose majors and begin to deepen their engagement with an academic subject through advanced coursework as well as cocurricular and professional experiences. This is a time for students to gain experience, build confidence, and put their learning into practice in a range of real-world situations. The Career Development Center helps students prepare for and take full advantage of meaningful internships and other professional experiences with our advising as well as a range of programming and events.
Whether immersing yourself in an on-campus research project or hunting for a summer internship, Oberlin has a range of programs and resources to help students take their coursework into the field.
