Experience. Applying what you learn in the classroom to real life situations. Understanding the daily demands of work. Taking risks. Gaining confidence and perspectives. These are things you don't learn from a textbook.

That's why internships and independent learning play a strong role in the Simmons curriculum.

We strongly encourage every Class of 2014 bachelor's recipient to participate in the Outcomes Survey, and to update their contact information (including email address) via the survey.
