Your education is an investment, and PayScale ranks the University of Arizona as the best at paying students back among Arizona's public universities. That means we provide world-class degrees, but it also means the UA actively helps its students get great jobs, whether they're online or on campus. Here are just a few ways we do that.
- Internships and Externships
In addition to the usual internship placement, the UA also helps you get externships, which provide short-term job-shadowing opportunities and allow students to experience multiple positions within their field to narrow down their options.
