Ways to Learn

This Summer

In addition to learning in UW-Madison’s physical and digital classrooms, earn credit for hands-on experiences. Some departments offer fieldwork courses or credit for internships, research, and other forms of independent study.

Certain service-learning courses are offered, and so are career courses such as Inter-LS 210, which helps students pursuing degrees in liberal arts and sciences set career goals and develop practical job skills. Contact your advisor for details on these programs and more.
