Experiential Learning

The SSC/Legal Studies major provides students the opportunity to complete an internship course to meet one of the major requirements. This experience allows students to experience in practice what they have studied in the classroom. The course is usually taken in the senior year. In past semesters students have interned with the WNY Office of the ACLU, the International Institute, the WNY Regional Office of Senator Chuck Schumer and various local law offices.

Study Abroad

The Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Degree Programs encourage students in any of our six majors to take part in a study abroad experience. Advisors in the program will work with students to review study abroad courses for possible use in the major.
