Each course is multidisciplinary in nature, meaning classrooms are full of students from different backgrounds and colleges, with varied interests and perspectives. In each Goff course, students work with classmates to complete real projects for real businesses, nonprofits, or other organizations.

Goff Explorers

In the Explorers program, students are paired with a for-credit internship and engage in a concurrent leadership/professional skills class. This experience allows students to build professional skills, test-drive an industry, and access extra support during their first professional experience.

“My biggest takeaway has been that a startup is really not as impossible as I before thought. This internship has given me hope for starting my own business in the future.” – Parker Smith, Health, Society, and Policy

Explorers from various majors across campus have interned with start-ups, large corporations, small businesses, and professional organizations. These experiences help them to learn and grow, ultimately preparing them for their next career opportunity.

Sample of Explorers’ experiences:

  • A junior EAE/games major worked directly with the CEO of a gaming company, analyzing competitors’ products and making specific program recommendations;
  • A first-year communications major and aspiring sportscaster interviewed local sports professionals and wrote articles for web and print, earning multiple bylines for his portfolio;
  • A junior QAMO major worked with start-up teams to build prospective customer awareness and generate new product sales;
  • and many others.
