Top Internships = Top Careers

We’ve built partnerships with major corporations, premier hospitals, community nonprofits and many other organizations. For many students, those internships lead to job offers even before graduation. Take a look at Nidhin's story to see how Dominican helped him do just that. 

High-Profile Research Opportunities

At Dominican, you won’t have to wait until graduate school to work side-by-side with a brilliant scholar. You’ll come away with an amazing portfolio and maybe even publish an article or present your work at a national conference. Explore some recent research opportunities from our Neuroscience students.

Gain a Global Perspective

You’ll encounter other world views, engage up close with other cultures and enjoy a little adventure in one of our 20 study abroad programs on four continents. Dominican pioneered the practice by starting one of the first programs in the 1920s. See what our students loved most about a recent trip to Rome, Italy.

You want to change the world. So do we. From tutoring Chicago-area school children to working with humanitarian groups in places like Guatemala, you’ll serve others, learn about social forces shaping our lives and find your voice.

Find More than a Career
