Opportunities for Experience

An emphasis on “learning by doing” is one reason Randolph’s sociology majors graduate with skills that prepare them for life and work.


All majors are required to complete an internship related to their personal and professional goals.

Recent majors have conducted research at the Central Virginia Planning District Commission; counseled people at retirement centers, halfway houses, children’s homes, and family-planning agencies; worked on various projects for local government agencies and law offices; helped provide health services to recent immigrants; and participated in service-learning projects in the Caribbean.

Summer Research

Spend the summer working closely with a professor and focused on a specific aspect of philosophy.

Randolph’s intensive eight-week Summer Research Program enables students to conduct research that is complemented by a thorough review of the relevant literature; live in a residence hall on campus, participate in on-campus summer events, attend special seminars with guest speakers; and share the progress and results of their research. Learn more about the Summer Research Program.

Study Abroad

Randolph students study abroad in multiple countries, including our flagship program Randolph College Abroad: The World in Britain at the University of Reading, England. Learn more about study abroad opportunities.
