Learning By Doing

  • SPARK Grants helped three communication and media students travel to Italy for multimedia internships and classes—and a favorite Nazareth professor was one of the instructors.
  • A Washington, D.C. internship for a legal studies major; a Holocaust Memorial Museum internship for a museums, archives, and public history major; and an internship with a refugee organization for a public health major provide hands-on learning and connections.
