Students are expected to be fully engaged in their professional development from day one of their time at the University of Florida, proactively seeking and preparing for opportunities as they arise, and self-directing as they navigate their professional or career pathway.
Digital Worlds strongly encourages internships that allow students to put their skills into practice in a real-world work environment while expanding their professional networks. The wide-ranging nature of Digital Worlds' interdisciplinary curricular components and its focus on critical thinking prepares students for internships and occupations in various industries and disciplines.
