Experiential Learning

A well-rounded education is about more than classroom learning. When you learn as a volunteer, through practicums, on student exchanges or by joining a club or interest group, you are introduced to situations that help make the connection between classroom and career.

Learn by doing

Connect theory to practice by participating in practicums, internships and field studies. Get involved with student research and study abroad programs. Join clubs or groups that allow you to explore personal interests. Gain experience and build your network through community-engaged learning. When you include these types of experiences on your resumé, potential employers take notice.

Specialists in experiential learning can help you learn more about the academic advantages of these and other types of learning opportunities.
