Immersion Trips

Immersion programs empower you to explore career options and make informed decisions.

They are open to all majors within A&S | Maxwell, and are designed to help you:

  • gain familiarity with a variety of different geographical regions;
  • make valuable connections with industry leaders and alumni;
  • learn about future internship and job opportunities; and
  • have a wider perspective of your chosen field.

Talk to your advisor about which immersion trip is right for you.

Stocks and Finance

Tom Toomey '95 majored in history and found his niche on Wall Street. He's made it possible for A&S | Maxwell students to explore careers in finance through the annual Stocks and Finance immersion trip. Students and advising staff spend three days in New York City each fall, visiting the New York Stock Exchange and firms in the financial sector—and sometimes meet media celebrities, like Jim Cramer, host of CNBC's Mad Money.

A&S | Maxwell student Shaquille Reid '22 reflects on his experience.

Discover Atlanta is a three-day immersion trip, in which students meet and network with alumni and other industry leaders at prominent companies. Linzy Dineen ’21—a Coronat Scholar and honors student, triple majoring in forensic science, biology and psychology—had this to say about her 2019 trip.
