Experiential Learning Opportunities

Experiential learning can be defined as any learning that supports students in their knowledge and conceptual understanding to real-world problems or situations where an instructor directs and facilitates learning. So, the classroom, laboratory and studio all become settings for this sort of exeprience. However, experiences such as internships, field study, clinical experiences, research and service learning projects also provide a powerful opportunity for real-world learning. Below are some opportunities within our system and at each University that students can explore.
