You may choose from more than 90 different minors to develop personal and professional interests that complement your academic program.
Experience that makes a difference
RIT is a world leader in experiential learning. Every academic program offers some form of experiential education opportunity designed to enrich your learning experience by providing you the opportunity to apply what you learn in the lab, classroom, or studio to real-world problems, projects, and settings.
Experiential education takes many forms, including cooperative education, internships, study abroad, undergraduate research, and industry-sponsored project work. Cooperative education (co-op) is the most extensive of RIT’s experiential education opportunities. Many academic programs require co-ops, while others make it available on an optional basis. Taken all together, this means positive outcomes from your RIT experience.
