The Linguistics department offers a teaching internship, where interns are placed in the Buffalo public schools as teacher's aides or tutors. Venues include Spanish-English bilingual schools, urban elementary schools, and international schools. Interns can also work with Literacy Volunteer Tutors or as ESL tutors in the Linguistics department.
SEAS Experiential Learning Programs (ELP) help students gain engineering experience that complements the classroom. A major focus is hands-on projects sourced from industry and the community, and self-defined projects. The ELP continuum includes 4 major elements: Tinkering, Intramurals, Internships/Co-Ops and Senior Design.
Students should participate in work experience classes and research opportunities. Independent study, internships, and co-op experiences are available. Students can obtain internships and job experiences through UB's Career Design Center. The Experiential Learning Network (ELN) is a clearing house for undergraduate research opportunities.
