Experiential Learning

The College of Arts and Sciences offers numerous opportunities for students to obtain real-life experiences in the classroom and through co-curricular activities that enhance their education and prepare them for careers.

Co-curricular programs range from undergraduate research experiences to education abroad programs. Each one works in tandem with academic programs to allow students to develop career-readiness competencies that serve as a foundation for solving world problems and communicating knowledge. This form of learning is experience-based (experiential learning).


The ICUE Connector is available to help students identify these opportunities on and off-campus and guides them through the application process.

Seminars and workshops are also offered to provide guidance and resources to prepare students for success in these experiences. Individual appointments may be scheduled to create personal development plans that incorporate experiential learning programs into academic plans. Assistance is also available to coordinate logistical issues such as housing, funding, course credit, and travel related to each experience.
