Students majoring in the social sciences at Rice University have a way to answer the frequent question, “What am I going to do with my degree?”
The GATEWAY program provides undergraduates opportunities to put what they learn in the classroom to work in real life through internships, summer fellowships, research opportunities, international ambassadorships, and a Global Urban Lab. Thus, by the time they graduate they have an idea what it takes to make contacts, conduct interviews, publish research, build networks and become leaders in their fields.
Between 2009 and 2013, over 70% of Social Sciences majors who earned national awards and fellowships such as Fulbright, Marshall, Rhodes, Watson, Truman, Whitaker and others, were Gateway students.
