We may not be able to anticipate what technical skills our graduates will need ten years from now, but we do know that they will need to think well and hard about questions for which there are no pat answers and to benefit from the knowledge and experience of others as they do so.

Through our Independent Learning Experience (ILE), Ursinus students have the opportunity to study abroad, conduct research, or perform an internship. The ILE allows you to develop your capacity for thinking independently and apply knowledge from the classroom in a real world setting.
