Students in Work-Based Learning programs have the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom with paid/unpaid, supervised, practical work experiences, directly related to their fields of study. Students typically work part-time, from 10 to 20 hours per week, while attending school and earning academic credit. This combination is a meaningful way for students to explore career choices and become better prepared for the job market after graduation.
