Beyond the Classroom

A growing variety of internships are offered to IT students across campus and throughout the community providing for additional experience outside of the classroom and lab setting. Opportunities may include web programming, videography, digital signage creation, and information technology support with many positions providing both class credit and payment.

Many internships have led to full-time employment upon graduation. 


Student interns also have opportunities to assist with the live production and event recording of bi-annual graduation ceremonies, live recording of sporting events throughout the year, and the live production of GSW's annual TEDxGeorgiaSouthwesternU event. These engaging experiences allow students to apply learned knowledge while gaining confidence in the field.


Beyond the Classroom activities provide collaborative events such as field trips, employer immersion, and undergraduate research which foster growth and maturity in our students.

Employer Immersion is a unique opportunity for GSW students to learn about an industry by visiting an organization's workplace. By engaging with professionals in a small group setting, students will be welcomed by staff, tour the company, and explore their interests by experiencing a typical workday in that field. While visiting, students have the chance to go behind the scenes of an organization or manufacturer, ask questions to professionals in the field, understand real world problems, and find out about potential job and internship opportunities in various disciplines and industries.

The annual Undergraduate Research Symposium provides students with research opportunities with an an expert in the field while engaging in best practices of research standards.
