Experiential Education

While a student’s coursework is a significant piece of career preparation, experiential education is also an essential element. This hands-on education provides students a place to engage in the world of work, take leaps into challenging experiences, and strengthen leadership, interpersonal, and organizational skills. An internship is one of the best ways to prepare for a career, and most students consider it an essential part of their education. Study abroad and domestic exchange broaden students' minds and enrich their education. There are even a multitude of ways to get involved on campus and in our local community.
