Dimensions supports a number of experiential learning opportunities that place students side-by-side with professionals in real-world situations. Internships, independent studies, and job shadowing are great ways to gain insight and experience in a particular field. They also allow you to see whether or not a profession is really for you while strengthening both your resume and your applications to graduate and professional schools.
