Professional Practice Project: Selective Options
All students are required to submit a Professional Practice Project application. A faculty committee places students based on skills, interests, and preferences as well as the quality of the submission.
All courses offer real-world professional experience and are open to seniors. Each course meets for an extended period one day per week. Courses involve collaborative teamwork and are often supported by a sponsoring industry partner.
