Going the Extra Mile

School can be so much more than attending class, reading books and taking tests.  Have you ever considered a study abroad program?  How about summer research, or a scholastic competition?  In many cases, lack of money should not be the immediate concern.  Many programs offer a stipend, or can be funded through financial aid.  Taking a traditional program of study to the next level can assist you in clarifying interests, stretch you as a student, and prepare you for life beyond college.

The Kellogg Honors Program
The Honors College provies an enriching and intellectually stimulating environment for cohorts of high achieving and motivated students. The College enriches their academic experience through individual advising and mentoring to support personal and intellectual development and successful program completion.
Study Abroad
Have you ever considered studying in another country for a summer, quarter or year? enrich your college experience, and lookinto one of CPP's many study abroad options.
Minors
Adding a minor can enhance your overall educational experience. A minor can either complement your major program of study in preparing for a specific career, or simply satisfy some intellectual curiousity or creative interest you might have. To view the list of approved minor programs go to the Catalog and type, "APPROVED MINOR PROGRAMS" in the search box.
Internships
Along with your academic department, the Career Center is an excellent place to find internship opportunities. If you are interested in finding internships posted by your department, simply go to the Cal Poly Pomona homepage and type “Internships” in the search box.
Research

Your department can serve as a great resource for you in finding open research opportunities. Some of these are available on campus, while other opportunities are off-campus, in another state, or even in another country. Some of these also include a research stipend. Whether you are a graduate or undergraduate student, see your advisor and ask where you might find open research opportunities. To get started in your search, here are three programs you might want to browse. Let us know if you learn of other programs by completing the feedback link at the bottom of this page.
