Developing solutions that benefit people & planet
Are you an undergraduate student looking to have a positive impact during your time at UF while developing crucial professional and research skills that can strengthen your competitiveness in the job market and future graduate level education?
Are you a faculty member engaged in a research project that could benefit from a team of well-trained undergraduate interns?
Then consider the Active Learning Program!
The Active Learning Program supports UF faculty engaged in hands-on research with eager, well-trained students.
The goals of the Active Learning Program are to:
Students enroll in a semester-long, 3-credit internship course (IDS 4940) in which they receive instruction, training and mentorship while conducting research and/or engaging the community. Professional skills labs are provided to help students develop their research, communication, leadership, organizational, and collaboration skills.
Professional skills labs are held Tuesdays, periods 8-10. Internship hours will vary depending on the project.
