The perfect addition to your undergraduate degree.
Career Semester is an innovative, remote skills-training program for students of all majors, created to accelerate students' careers in a rapidly changing job landscape.
It is designed to augment an undergraduate education in any field of study, focusing on the desirable areas of data science, investment finance, digital marketing, and more—providing skills relevant to any current industry.
Participants engage in a live skill-development bootcamp followed by an international internship, giving them the career-boosting experience they need. Career Semester programs are unlike anything most students have experienced before. Instead of streaming content designed for large audiences, each online course is taught live by industry experts who are trained to foster engagement and community.
After completing the course aspect of the program, students will be matched with a global internship partner and work with their peers on a real-world project that’s scoped to their skill set. Throughout the internship, students will receive consistent feedback and support from their manager, their peers, and Career Semester’s expert education team.

What Career Semester Students are Saying
This class was incredibly rewarding. Not only were our professors and teaching assistants knowledgable, passionate, and dedicated, but we were given the opportunity to muddle through problems on our own and teach ourselves skills—both very valuable learning experiences. The internship was an amazing experience that gave every student real industry experience."
