While earning a degree at SIU, it is important to consider adding hands-on experience to enhance the concepts learned in the classroom. Experiential education opportunities, such as internships and externships, bring your education to the next level as you apply information, reflect on the experience, and process it to memory.

The Career Development Center is committed to educating the SIU community on the importance and availability of experiential education and creating and maintaining connections with alumni and friends of the university to create new opportunities for students.
