Exploring CASTravel & Study Away

QU in LA

Credits: 3

You’ll immediately begin an internship — chosen before your arrival — that is at once challenging and rewarding, and allows you to learn from veteran professionals and mentors. Through them you gain not only industry knowledge and tangible skills, but access to a strong network in the area.

Outside of work, your growth only continues against the diverse cultural and artistic backdrop of sunny Southern California. The greater Los Angeles area offers a wealth of unique opportunities for cultural enrichment. Activities have included group trips to the J. Paul Getty Museum, USC football games, hiking in Laurel Canyon and outings to famous LA landmarks like the Hollywood sign.

While QU in LA is a fully immersive experience, you are not without a support system. You’ll be housed in one central location with your program peers, and have on-site access to a full-time program director, available at all times. With a regularly expanding library of contacts at his disposal, he will put you in touch with all of the personal and professional resources you may need.

Currently enrolled Quinnipiac juniors and seniors who have maintained a minimum 3.0 GPA become eligible to attend the QU in LA program after their sophomore year. Students have their choice of attending during the spring, summer or fall semesters.
