Student Opportunities

Leadership

Each year SHC’s director, in consultation with faculty affiliates, selects two of its adjunct majors to serve as its representatives on Weinberg College’s student advisory board (SAB). In addition, if there is sufficient interest, SHC’s director also selects a program chair to help coordinate events during the year for interested undergraduates.

Study Abroad and Work Experience

SHC also encourages its students to take advantage of study abroad opportunities, especially those programs related to science, medicine, and the environment. It also supports internship opportunities with Northwestern’s Chicago Field Studies, especially the existing program in “Public Health” and the new program, “Environment, Science, and Sustainability.” Credit toward the adjunct major or minor will be decided on a case by case basis by SHC’s director.
