Rice: Unconventional Wisdom

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is a core component to intellectual life at Rice, giving students opportunities for internships, research and study on campus and off, in Houston and around the world, expanding the foundation of classroom learning and adding to our dynamic educational experience.

These immersive academic experiences at Rice take many forms. On campus, students conduct research alongside our distinguished faculty. Many students also perform independent research projects with guidance of a faculty member. Rice's more than 40 institutes, centers and consortia provide multiple opportunities for research and study.

Off campus, Rice students can study abroad through more than 500 university-approved programs in 60 countries. They intern with Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations and government agencies here in Houston and around the globe.
