Experiential Learning

At UC Blue Ash, we take pride in offering educational programs that go beyond the classroom.  We are developing a new internship program that helps students partner with leading employers throughout the area in positions that tie directly to their field of study.  Many of the internships are paid and can apply toward an academic program.

Our Service Learning program is also really beginning to take shape. It focuses on providing community service opportunities that help students learn more about themselves.  They may also find their true passion and calling along the way.  In 2013, a group of eight students and two faculty members spent their spring break in Guadeloupe in the French Caribbean, providing community service and conducting projectst that compared poverty in the U.S. with that in the tiny island nation. 

Hands-On Learning

Add to your education and enhance your resume with an internship that relates to your specific field of study.  We are already developing internship opportunities in areas that include marketing, communications, research, graphic design, and electronic media. More to come.
