Think Outside the Books

At Providence College, some of the most powerful learning experiences take place far beyond the classroom walls — in the lab, on stage, in the studio, in downtown Providence, even halfway around the world.

Your studies may lead you to New York City, where you could learn the ins and outs of social marketing from PC alumni at Facebook and Google. You could end up in a remote village
 in Ghana working to improve water quality and sanitation using technology developed at Providence College. You could curate an exhibit at an on-campus gallery or drive to Newport to study the city’s history in the slave trade. You could throw on a pair of waders and head to a nearby farm pond, where PC researchers monitor salamander populations through genetic sampling.

Engaged learning happens all around us — through internships, service opportunities, research, scholarship, study abroad trips, and so much more.

There’s a big world out there. Step outside the classroom.
